About Landmark Cases in Revenue Law

In an important addition to the series, this book tells the story of 20 leading revenue law cases. It goes well beyond technical analysis to explore questions of philosophical depth, historical context and constitutional significance. The editors have assembled a stellar team of tax scholars, including historians as well as lawyers, practitioners as well as academics, to provide a wide range of fresh perspectives on familiar and unfamiliar decisions. The whole collection is prefaced by the editors' extended introduction on the peculiar significance of case-law in revenue matters. This publication is a thought provoking and engaging showcase of tax writing that is accessible equally to specialists and non-specialists.

“Snape and de Cogan frame a book containing classic cases in tax law as a means of understanding the deeply social and political nature of tax law, revenue law, the government, and the people's interactions in what they hope will be a civilized society. Seeing issues from this more inclusive framing will allow legal scholars to contribute to that desired outcome without unnecessarily narrowing (and thus inevitably distorting) their focus.” –  Neil H Buchanan, Jotwell

“[A] full appreciation of the immense effort put in by each of the contributors gradually reveals itself after reading each of the contributions. The book is extensively researched and indexed... This book offers much more than an analysis of leading revenue law cases in the UK... This reviewer thoroughly endorses this book as essential reading to anyone interested in the historical development of the UK's revenue law through the lens of the common law. Furthermore, it is recommended to anyone with an interest in revenue law, especially where the common law operates. It is not a book for reading in a single session; its full impact on one's thinking is only achievable if a reader takes time to reflect upon the implications and insights provided by each of the chapters. This book should be part of the collections of tax practitioners, academics, officials, the judiciary and students with a keen interest in the law, especially those working with, or having an interest in, revenue law.” –  Adrian Sawyer, Professor of Taxation, UC Business School, University of Canterbury, New Zealand, British Tax Review
