This collection assembles the most important and influential papers in the field of equity and trusts. While taking seriously the intimate and historical relationship between English equity and the law of trusts, the volume also addresses new and comparative perspectives on the subject, bringing together common law and civil law, doctrinal scholarship and socio-legal analysis, historical approaches to equity and functional ones.

The collection compiles a wide range of authors and outlooks ranging from Maitland to recent material on fiduciary obligations and discretionary trusts, highlighting the universality of equity as a body of law, and the nature of the trust as a fundamental juristic institution. Accompanied by an original introduction from the editors, this collection promises to be a useful tool for academics captivated by this subject area.
