520    "Little attention has been paid to the development of 
       Australian private law throughout the first half of the 
       twentieth century. Using the law of tort as an example, 
       Mark Lunney argues that Australian contributions to common
       law development need to be viewed in the context of the 
       British race patriotism that characterised the 
       intellectual and cultural milieu of Australian legal 
       practitioners. Using not only primary legal materials but 
       also newspapers and other secondary sources, he traces 
       Australian developments to what Australian lawyers viewed 
       as British common law. The interaction between formal 
       legal doctrine and the wider Australian contexts in which 
       that doctrine applied provided considerable opportunities 
       for nuanced innovation in both the legal rules themselves 
       and in their application."--Back cover
