George Bizos is one of a distinguished group of human rights lawyers who in the dark days of apartheid sought to uncover the state's role in eliminating its opponents.
Some, like Biko, Timol and Aggett, were arrested and died in detention, while others, like Matthew Goniwe, were abducted and killed. As counsel for the families of the deceased, George Bizos was centrally involved in many of the inquests following these high-profile deaths.
He is thus well placed to tell the story of the great courtroom dramas in which, with devastating skill, he and his colleagues pared away the tissue of lies protecting the security forces and the state functionaries—only to be rewarded with the invariable finding that there was 'no one to blame'.

Now part of the Juta’s Property Law Library series, the third edition provides a comprehensive discussion of the core aspects of South African planning law.
The second edition, Planning Law (2012), reflected more of the new constitutional dispensation that brought with it not only a focus on values and equity, but also the development of an entirely new vision and structure for planning in the three spheres of government. It introduced some basic principles, addressed the apartheid roots of planning law in South Africa and gave detailed attention to the core of planning law.
Since the publication of the second edition, planning law has received increasing attention and the constitutional, legislative and jurisprudential framework has undergone significant contextual development. Evolving constitutional insights are providing a better perspective on the content of planning law and the impact of planning frameworks and decisions on government, in its three spheres, as well as owners and neighbours.
The Constitutional Court has, to a large extent, clarified the different planning competences and how these are allocated to each of the spheres of government. The enactment of the Spatial Planning and Land Use Management Act 16 of 2013 (SPLUMA) has paved the way for the discipline to develop considerably and to be more integrated. The resultant effect on planning law has been immense and has necessitated this new edition that has been reworked and updated in its entirety. Since planning law is multi-faceted, the book also deals with related administrative, environmental, local government and informal settlement issues. All the relevant legal principles and legislative provisions are amplified by discussions of applicable court decisions.
The introduction of capital gains tax has completely changed the fiscal landscape in South Africa. In this new era, no contract (or variation of a contract), no business deal, no corporate reconstruction, no sale of investments, no waiver or reduction of a debt and no formation or variation of a trust should be entered into without careful appraisal of the capital gains tax consequences. This work is designed to meet the needs of attorneys, accountants, tax consultants, investment advisers, and other professionals. The manual explains, in depth and in detail, the conceptual basis and the practical implications of capital gains tax. The work includes a paragraph-by-paragraph commentary on the provisions of the Eighth Schedule and the Corporate Rules, including many practical illustrations of capital gains tax calculations. The second edition incorporates legislative amendments up to and including the Second Revenue Laws Amendment Act 34 of 2004. The commentary on the Eighth Schedule has been considerably expanded with the addition of many new practical examples. A detailed commentary on the Corporate Rules has been added, plus new chapters on foreign currency gains and losses, anti-avoidance provisions, and administrative requirements.
European law has come to influence almost all fields of national law, including administrative, constitutional, contract, criminal and even tort law. But what is the European Union? How does it work? How does it produce European law? This book uses a clear framework to guide readers through all core constitutional and substantive topics of EU law. New content includes: a Brexit chapter covering the negotiation process and the possible future relationships between the United Kingdom and the European Union, new EU private international law and EU criminal law sections, and extended coverage of delegated legislation, human rights and free movement of persons. All chapters reflect judicial and legislative practice up to 31st December 2017. Key features include case extracts accompanied by extensive critical discussion of the theoretical and practical aspects of EU law, over 100 figures and tables clarifying complex topics and a companion website with full 'Lisbonised' versions of cited cases and many extra materials.
There is already ample evidence that the new constitutional order has triggered an unprecedented flowering of South African jurisprudential debate. The aim of this book is to provide a sensitive and intuitive understanding of these debates. In addition, lecturers will be given an innovative approach to what has been previously regarded as a difficult, boring and irrelevant subject.
This text deals with the basic concepts of the law and explains the operation of the law and the administration of justice.

The first volume, a legal humour edited by Professor Kahn, Law, Life and Laughter published in 1991 was the subject of many favourable reviews. It went through three impressions, was sold out years ago and today is a collector's item. This second melange of legal humour and piquant revelations of personalities in the law of Southern Africa is almost entirely new, containing nothing that appeared in the first volume except a number of brilliant caricatures of which the temptation to reproduce was irresistible.
This book discuss some fundamental changes in South African legal education. One of these changes is the introduction at first year level of a course in the basics of the law and the development of legal skills.

This new work promotes a proper understanding of Roman legal development and is an essential study guide for students of Roman law.

The author has analysed the various philosophies extensively, and has indicated the intensity of current jurisprudential debates in relation to South African law.
Selected essays by notable scholars that address practical issues of concern and offer possible solutions regarding future peace in Jerusalem. Many of the perspectives in these essays are unique and have never been published for a wider audience. Contributors consider aspects of the "politics of religion" - an issue rarely explored objectively in existing literature. Other articles propose ways of mediating the challenges of Jerusalem. In covering a range of crucial subjects, the book will appeal to Jewish and Christian audiences alike. Other primary readers include Middle East and law scholars.
This book offers a foreign reader an overview and understanding of the most important aspects of the law and legal system in Sweden, from the legal institutions to more specific topics such as contract law, tort law and family law. These presentations are not exhaustive but rather meant to give the reader a sufficient enough understanding to be somewhat orientated in the Swedish legal system. The book is written for non-Swedish practitioners faced with a specific legal issue involving Swedish law. It is also addressed to foreign law students in need of an overview of the Swedish legal system in order to help them in their further studies at Swedish universities.
