Abstract

The book review is about Glanville Williams famous book on learning the law.

"THIS is not a textbook, and it is not a book that is likely to be prescribed in any examination syllabus. It is, I hope, a book that the law students will read voluntarily," writes Williams at the very beginning of the book and of course is being read by a large majority of law students globally, which is proved by the fact that it has gone through its 14th edition since its birth in 1945.
