New co-edited publication from Dr John Snape
Warwick Law School Associate Professor and GLOBE Member, Dr John Snape, and University of Cambridge Lecturer and fellow of Christ’s College, Dr Dominic de Cogan have, in January 2019, published with Hart their new edited book Landmark Cases in Revenue Law. The book has been recognised as Hart's Book of the Month.
About the book: “In an important addition to the [Hart Landmark Cases] series, this book tells the story of 20 leading revenue law cases. It goes well beyond technical analysis to explore questions of philosophical depth, historical context and constitutional significance. The editors have assembled a stellar team of tax scholars, including historians as well as lawyers, practitioners as well as academics, to provide a wide range of fresh perspectives on familiar and unfamiliar decisions. The whole collection is prefaced by the editors' extended introduction on the peculiar significance of case-law in revenue matters. This publication is a thought-provoking and engaging showcase of tax writing that is accessible equally to specialists and non-specialists.”
The editors believe that the volume will be an invaluable resource for scholars looking for sensitive, critical, writing on taxation law and it contains many pointers to further primary and secondary literature. It should be very useful, not only to established legal academic writers and practitioners, but also to undergraduate and postgraduate students seeking new insights into the case-law in this most complex of legal subjects. The emphasis of the various contributions on history and philosophy will also ensure the book’s appeal to scholars working in disciplines adjacent to law, not least history, politics, economics and philosophy.
