'This is a marvellous book. It manages to combine crystal clear summaries of all areas of trusts law with in-depth and insightful discussions of the principles and policies underlying those areas of the law. It should be compulsory reading for anyone studying the law of trusts.' -- Nick McBride, Director of Studies in Law, Pembroke College, Cambridge "I'm very pleased with this textbook. I feel the authors have identified a significant gap in the teaching of law generally, namely that students are being required to apply rules without any real understanding of why the rules exist, how they can change, and how they are re-evaluated in the light of similar circumstances, but circumstances where a different outcome may be justified. Accordingly, pointing this out is a very valuable technique to helping people understand the law on this area. Also, there is a tendency for textbooks to focus on how much law they can cram in, and a tendency also for lecturers to consider this to be advantageous. However, Webb and Akkouh's focus, possibly the advantage of the authors' combination of practice and academic backgrounds, emphasises the importance of how flexible the law is, and how different viewpoints may be expressed, albeit with supporting authorities". - Dr Catrin Fflur Huws, Aberystwyth University
