    Forty years on since the first edition was published and eight editions later, Statutory Interpretation in Australia remains the preeminent text on the subject.

    This new edition concentrates on:

    • statements of the courts and tribunals – describing approaches, assumptions and techniques of interpretation, as well as the application of these in one's work
    • the Interpretation Acts of each of the Australian jurisdictions – understanding the content of which is essential to determining the meaning of legislation.

    Extensive case references to the relevant principles for each jurisdiction have been included, allowing readers to identify the authorities that best suit their particular purposes.

    This 40th anniversary edition is an essential reference work for the judiciary, practitioners and students.

    In the foreword to this edition The Hon Chief Justice Robert French AC says: "The book is lucid, well organised and eminently readable, whether from cover to cover or by topical chapter or section. Importantly, it brings to judges, practitioners, teachers and students a comprehensive account of what is, in principle and practice, perhaps the most important subject area in the day-to-day working of the legal system."
