About Studies in the History of Tax Law, Volume 3

This work on the history of tax law presents the papers delivered at the third Tax Law History Conference in 2006 organised by the Centre for Tax Law in the Law Faculty at Cambridge University. The papers deal with a range of topics, and though the breadth of topics is broad, it is not devoid of pattern. The majority of the papers deal with themes connected with continental Europe, law and empire, international law, and the problems of progression and the tax system. As a whole the papers, by leading tax scholars from all over the world, once again illustrate a wide variety and depth of learning on tax history, and highlight the important issues waiting to be investigated in this rapidly growing field of scholarship.

“The history of tax law will only be understood if it is studied; and the Cambridge History of Tax Law conferences, together with this series of volumes, are an excellent contribution to the filling of this need.” –  Mike Macnair, British Tax Review, No. 5

“These studies in history of tax laws and policies, their design and development, structure and administration, intended and unintended effects, not only enlightens and informs, sometimes even entertains, but also provides a comparative resource for recurrent issues.” –  Mr Howard Alexander, Queensland Supreme Court History Programme Yearbook
