Abstract

This English book, which states at the outset that it is specifically written for family law students both undergraduate and beyond, would not suit as a text for an undergraduate course on family law in Australia, due to the significant differences in the legal positions in the two jurisdictions. Developed from materials prepared for an undergraduate course at Oxford, nor is the book likely to be of much interest to many Australian family law practitioners. However, for anyone interested in thinking about family law, this book provides an invaluable and thought provoking read. George captures and succinctly explains much of the modern debate about family law. While his examples may be drawn from the United Kingdom, the issues raised are equally apposite to an Australian setting.
