As this work examines the new legislation and includes detailed background to the Act, the provisions of the Act and each of the rights which are enshrined in the Act, you can be confident that you have the information you need to interpret a complicated area of law - with ease. European and Commonwealth case law is also included together with primary materials such as the Act itself and key international conventions to provide you with the most authoritative account of the Human Rights Act in one handy reference source.

The main focus of this indispensable title is upon civil and political rights but discussion is also given on such areas as economic, social and cultural rights, which are in part justiciable and relevant to the interpretation of some civil and political rights. Separate chapters consider the impact of the new legislation on Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales to allow you to evaluate the effect of the Human Rights Act 1998 across the entire United Kingdom.

This new edition also features a new chapter on the Parliamentary Committee on Human Rights.
