This is the first cases and materials book in the field of Australian anti-discrimination law. The book, which deals with all Australian jurisdictions, contains a detailed analysis of Australian anti-discrimination law as well as extracts from all of the major cases and the writings of leading commentators.

All of the major grounds of unlawful discrimination, such as race, sex and disability, are considered in detail. The book records the history of the major pieces of anti-discrimination legislation and it includes numerous suggestions for reform. While the book deals systematically and critically with all aspect of anti-discrimination law, such as grounds, areas of activity, exceptions, procedure, and remedies, it also contains extensive materials dealing with the policy goals of the law.

The central chapter in the book is devoted to the concept of unlawful discrimination. All of the major High Court decisions concerning the notions of direct and indirect discrimination are extracted, explained and analysed. The chapter also contains a useful overview of the international history of these concepts, with references to leading US and UK cases.

The book will be of interest to practitioners as well as students, especially as there are comprehensive chapters in the areas of procedure and remedies. Each chapter contains problems for students.
