From the cover: “This book is an Introduction in the truest sense of the word, since it gives the reader a general outline of the Law as a whole which will equip him for the study of the more advanced works on particular aspects of law. Designed primarily for young men and women preparing for professional examinations, it will also be appreciated by first-year University students; in addition, its style is so straightforward and pleasant that it is suitable for study in schools by sixth forms, by W. E. A. classes and in technical and commercial colleges. The ‘man in the street’ with an enquiring mind will also be interested in this account of the legal system and the laws under which he lives.
. In its brief life of only twelve years, the book has achieved a remarkable popularity, and the appearance of this Fifth Edition is in response to the continuing demand for an up-to-date version in the light of recent legislative changes. The author has therefore taken account of several new statutes such as the Mental Health Act, 1959, the Administration of Justice Act, 1960, and the Suicide Act, 1961 (to mention only a few), and has also made other changes — such as expanding the section on the Tort of Negligence — so that the book is of the maximum possible assistance to its readers.”
