Book DescriptionEuropean consumer law has become a vital part of both legal education and practice. This Casebook details the most fundamental judgments of the Court of Justice on consumer law to date and their effect on national legal systems. It contains twenty leading European cases and is then followed by concise analyses of the effect of these decisions on some of the national legal systems of the Member States, and how national legislatures and national courts have reacted to this ever burgeoning area of European law. The focus of the book is private law, including consumer contracts, advertisement law, European product liability and consumer dispute resolutions.
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.
