About the Authors
  • This book examines constitutional rights to property in Commonwealth countries. It concentrates on the central issues of a right to property, such as the meaning of "property," and "adequate" or "fair" compensation. Many judges use comparative law to resolve constitutional cases. However, very few books have been written on comparative law in the Commonwealth. It also examines the historical background in the fundamental principles of the British constitution and the colonial system. The analysis is both practical and theoretical, and it will be useful to academic and practicing lawyers.

    • The first book on Commonwealth rights to property
    • Organised around central themes of the right to property, looking at both theoretical and practical issues
    • First comparative study of bills of rights in the Commonwealth for many years
