Blackshield and Williams Australian Constitutional Law and Theory - Abridged: Commentary and Materials
Edition 7 Revised edition
Publication Date 19 Jan 2018
OverviewThis is the new and seventh edition of this acclaimed and authoritative book on Australian constitutional law. Fresh material reflects the contemporary approach of the High Court. The book has been fully revised and updated for major High Court and overseas decisions, including Re Canavan, Brown v Tasmania, McCloy v New South Wales, Murphy v Electoral Commissioner, the Brexit Case and Plaintiff M68/2015 v Minister for Immigration. Always `much more than a casebook' as Sir Anthony Mason said of a previous edition, the book also presents carefully selected extracts from a broad range of writers and commentators. The reviewer for the Law Institute Journal said of the sixth edition that this book is `a great resource for practitioners wanting an authoritative guide to Australian constitutional law' and a `must-have for law students who would like more depth of analysis'.
