"Bailey has once again created a practical epic, establishing himself as a virtuoso of construction law on an international scale.

I have full confidence in recommending this text to any practitioner or student in need of a comprehensive and authoritative collection of all things construction related."

"...outstanding...Wherever one looks, the completeness of coverage and case citation stands out as does the clarity of the exposition. Practitioners need this...this is a true practitioner's work in an area where much law is made and practised here and overseas."
Richard Wilmot-Smith QC, Law Quarterly Review
"Now in its second edition - eagerly anticipated by the legal profession internationally- Construction Law is firmly established as a classic. Indeed, it is one of the finest works in any branch of English or Australian commercial law published in the past half century.
