Second Edition

Ben McFarlane, Nicholas Hopkins, and Sarah Nield

Core Texts Series

  • Depth and detail is presented in context, guiding students through the maze of abstract topics
  • Significant cases are emphasized in the text and are used to illustrate rules while diagrams clarify key points for visual learners
  • Further reading lists accompany each chapter to direct additional research, and end-of-chapter questions give students an opportunity to test their knowledge
