The effective two-part structure of each chapter in the book - the first part explaining the law as it is, the second examining the theoretical aspects of the law - ensures that readers not only gain a secure understanding of the law itself but also acquire a fundamental appreciation of the surrounding philosophical and ethical debates. Important theoretical material is made accessible to students through a particularly engaging writing style. The author's clarity of expression brings the subject to life and places the law in context.
