Kanstantsin Dzehtsiarou, Legal Studies This monograph is an original insight into the doctrine of margin of appreciation. It will probably have some considerable impact on academic writing in the area of human rights adjudication.

The Commonwealth Lawyer, Vol. 21, No. 2 Few will dispute that Lord Bingham was one fo the most prolific and articulate members of the senior judiciary before his retirement and his untimely death just a few years ago. It is entirely fitting therefore that his extra-judicial writings should be brought together in collections such as this one, which reveal both his deep learning and his passion for the rule of law.

Geoffrey Robertson, NewStatesman The value of this publication is to provide a modern-day exposition of the best thinking behind recent constitutional changes.
