ISBN-10: 0198765037

ISBN-13: 9780198765035

Extensively rewritten and updated, the new edition of this authoritative textbook provides a detailed account of the English law of civil liberties and human rights. The text takes full account of the jurisprudence of the European Convention on Human Rights and discusses such recent legislation as; the Freedom of Information Act 2000, Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act 2000, the Data Protection Act 1998 and analyses key cases including the conjoined twins, R. v Chief Constable of Sussex, ex parte International Trader's Ferry Ltd and various cases involving immigrants and prisoners. After providing an outline of reasons for the importance of rights and freedoms, David Feldman examines methods of protecting them in international and municipal law. The system introduced by the Human Rights Act 1998 is fully explained, providing a cohesive and authoritative account of the new legal rules and procedures which now form the basis for protecting basic freedoms. The role of fundamental values such as equality, autonomy, dignity and community is discussed and key topics such as rights to life and physical integrity, privacy, freedom of expression etc are examined in light of legislation such as the Disability Rights Act 1995 and the Police Act 1997. The result is a coherent, detailed and comprehensive text for students. It is also a valuable reference work for practitioners and others interested in the protection of human rights and individual freedoms.
