This text provides a concise and analytical overview of account of the English law of trusts, drawing out especially this area's underlying concerns and suggesting ways in which the rules can be explained and evaluated. By providing law students with an intelligible framework within which to understand this subject's otherwise abstract and elusive material, it offers them a valuable starting point for this part of their work.

It is ideal for using alongside or after more detailed study of the subject, as a resource for developing a more rounded and effective appreciation of the rules, and a critical apparatus for appraising them. It also provides an accessible overview of trusts for those not primarily engaged in this area of study, especially if they have some understanding of law. In this second edition, the book has been brought up to date, and given a substantially revised set of critical perspectives.
