This is the seventh edition of John Tiley's major textbook on revenue law, now massively restructured to focus upon the UK tax system, income tax, capital gains tax, and inheritance tax. Previous sections dealing with corporation tax, international and European tax, savings, and charities have been spun-off to an entirely new, forthcoming 2013 book entitled Advanced Topics in Revenue Law. While this narrowing of the scope of Revenue Law means that it focuses on the most important UK taxes, its reduced size also makes it a more manageable and portable volume for law students and practitioners. As with previous editions, the text has been revised to incorporate changes wrought by new enactments in the past four years. This however remains the only book on tax law which continues to explain the new law found in the UK's Income Tax (Earnings and Pensions) Act, Income Tax (Trading and Other Income) Act 2005, and Income Tax Act, in light of its legislative predecessors, with references to the former enactments still remaining where relevant. Those familiar with the old law of income tax - but wanting to find their way around the new law - will find this work particularly valuable. The book is designed for law students taking the subject in the final year of their law degree course or for more advanced courses and will be of interest to all who are focused on tax law. Its purpose is not only to provide an account of the rules, but to include citation of the relevant literature from legal periodicals and some discussion of, or reference to, the background material in terms of policy, history, or other countries' tax systems.
The Cambridge Yearbook of European Legal Studies provides a forum for the scrutiny of significant issues in EU Law, the law of the European Convention on Human Rights, and Comparative Law with a 'European' dimension, and particularly those issues which have come to the fore during the year preceding publication. The contributions appearing in the collection are commissioned by the Centre for European Legal Studies (CELS) Cambridge, a research centre in the Law Faculty of the University of Cambridge specialising in European legal issues. The papers presented are at the cutting edge of the fields which they address, and reflect the views of recognised experts drawn from the University world, legal practice, and the institutions of both the EU and its Member States. Inclusion of the comparative dimension brings a fresh perspective to the study of European law, and highlights the effects of globalisation of the law more generally, and the resulting cross fertilisation of norms and ideas that has occurred among previously sovereign and separate legal orders. The Cambridge Yearbook of European Legal Studies is an invaluable resource for those wishing to keep pace with legal developments in the fast moving world of European integration.

"The Rule of Law" is a phrase much used but little examined. The idea of the rule of law as the foundation of modern states and civilisations has recently become even more talismanic than that of democracy, but what does it actually consist of? In this brilliant short book, Britain's former senior law lord, and one of the world's most acute legal minds, examines what the idea actually means. He makes clear that the rule of law is not an arid legal doctrine but is the foundation of a fair and just society, is a guarantee of responsible government, is an important contribution to economic growth and offers the best means yet devised for securing peace and co-operation. He briefly examines the historical origins of the rule, and then advances eight conditions which capture its essence as understood in western democracies today. He also discusses the strains imposed on the rule of law by the threat and experience of international terrorism. The book will be influential in many different fields and should become a key text for anyone interested in politics, society and the state of our world.
