Description
This new edition of Bindra's authoritative treatise on Interpretation of Statutes foregrounds the factual circumstances within which interpretational principles operate. It continually alerts the reader on the diversity of judicial choice whilst contextually explaining the decisions courts have made in the cases included in the current revision period. This edition elaborates on current day developments in the realm of interpretation along with consciously protecting the integrity of the original work. Thus whilst the manner in which courts use the canons to fathom legislative intention is centrally documented, the activist makeover of the courts has also been interstitially recorded. This revised edition accords contemporary relevance to the book without losing its vintage flavour.
