This work contains the full text of the papers given at the first Tax Law History Conference in Cambridge in September 2002 and organised by the Cambridge Law Faculty's Centre for Tax Law. The papers ranged widely from the King John to the 20th century, from Tudor England's Statute of Wills to the American taxes on slaves, from Hong Kong, Australia and Israel.

The sources ranged from the Public Record office to the bowels of Somerset House. The topics ranged form the tax base through tax administration to tax policy making as well as providing detailed accounts of the UK's remittance basis of taxation and the Excess Profits Duty of the First World War.

All students of tax law and tax history will want to read these papers by an international team of leading scholars in tax law and history.
