I end this review with an apology to the 26 contributors to this collection whose names I have omitted and whose learned insights I have failed, in the interests of brevity, to acknowledge. I can only say that this collection is a treasure trove into which every lawyer and student of law should delve if they aspire to become an energy and natural resources lawyer. * Robert Pritchard, International Energy Law Review *
There is coverage of a broad and complex range of legal issues in a comprehensive and logical manner...the legal analysis provided in this collection is both thorough and informative. It no doubt will feature prominently on law course reading lists in both the natural resource and property areas...and should be promoted beyond research circles to the wider communities involved in natural resource and property development. * Linda Siegele, University College London *
