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 work is intented primarily to reflect the law dealing with water resource management and the provision of water services in South Africa. The law governing water in South Africa was always regarded as a specialised field practised by a small group of lawyers. However, the political and social reform during the last decade of the 20th century, the water-related problems experienced and the prominence given to fundamental human rights and environment-related matters have significantly increased the need for this knowledge by others. South Africa is in the process of developing and implementing a new framework governing water resource management and the provision of water services.

Government Liability: South Africa And The Commonwealth is the first attempt to analyse in comparative terms the law of government liability and bureaucratic negligence in South Africa, England, Australia, Canada, and New Zealand.
The book is structured around the three basic sources of action – constitutional, statutory and common law – through which an aggrieved person may obtain damages in South African courts for wrongful government conduct. In analysing the legal position in South Africa, the book draws extensively upon case law from the English, Australian, Canadian and New Zealand courts.
The authors examine the impact of the Constitution on developments in the common law of public authority liability and government vicarious liability in South Africa, and link these developments to the changes that have taken place in Canada and England. The study also provides a comparative analysis of the correlation between fraud, bad faith and misfeasance in public office as grounds upon which damages can be awarded when constitutional and administrative justice rights are breached by public functionaries.
Government Liability: South Africa And The Commonwealth also investigates the century-old question of holding the employer, in this instance, the public employer, vicariously liable for the illegal acts of its servants.
The book tackles the problematic issue of quantum of damages in public law in a thorough and comparative manner, not hitherto attempted in the Commonwealth.

Psychology and law are disciplines and professions that seem to be, at first glance, quite distinct and separate - but in reality their congruences are many and varied - psychologists frequently appear in court as expert witnesses; and they often actively research topics that are directly related to law and legal practice. Similarly, lawyers and other legal professional often face questions in their professional practice that are inherently psychological in nature. This text introduces the reader to some of the intersections of psychology and law. Each chapter includes learning objectives, exercises and a detailed reference section. Topics addressed in psychology and law include: psychological assessment in forensic settings; crime and policing; child custody assessment; the detection of deception and truthfulness; eyewitness testimony and identification; the role and treatment of child witnesses in legal proceedings; assessing dangerousness and the risk of violence; the psychologist as expert witness; investigative psychology and psychological profiling; psychology and human rights; insanity and diminished capacity defences.
Taxation of Legal Costs in South Africa provides clear and practical guidance on taxation of costs, which will assist in determining reasonable costs in line with the existing legal system. Taxation is about the quantification of legal costs and therein lies the crux of any costs issue. The book explains how the process of taxation exercises control over costs that are legally recovered so that fees and costs are reasonable. Taxation of Legal Costs in South Africa identifies the key aspects of costs and all aspects of taxation. It records and integrates the practices, rules, tariffs and judgments of court to provide a practical resource. The discretion that is applied in taxing bills of costs and the principles relied upon in reviewing taxations are discussed extensively. The book analyses maximum tariffs that legal practitioners may charge, which have a significant impact on both the public and the legal profession. The author also offers practical suggestions for solutions to challenges that arise in practice.
This edition contains more words than its predecessors, especially words from the commercial sphere. It follows a new style, namely to group derivations under the leading word instead of treating them as separate entries. There appear after the main word, in bold print and alphabetically, the suffixes to the main word with translations. Concessions have again been made to anglicisms for the sake of clarity of meaning.
On publication of the previous edition of Computers and the Law, developments such as the Internet and electronic commerce were as yet unthought of. The second edition strives to bring the reader up to date with such developments. It also attempts to gauge the law's reaction, or lack of it, to these developments.

The series follows a consistent format and covers issues such as key ethical and legal considerations, relevant legislation, case studies, and practical applications. These concise, accessible texts will be suitable for accreditation when continuing professional development becomes a requirement
Legal luminaries from around the world met at South Africa’s Constitutional Court to discuss the judiciary’s influence in effecting societal change, its relationship with the state and the marginalized and its role in breathing life into the rights to equality, free speech and life. Seminal human rights court cases that retain their relevance despite the passage of time, served as catalysts for reflection, recollection and discussion by some of the world’s leading jurists.
The first-hand accounts of some of those who had been involved in these cases lend poignancy and provide a unique insight into cases that have shaped human rights law.
This book presents fresh and inspiring perspectives on the canon of human rights law. The discussions – lively, engaging, responsive and open-ended – place cases in context while mapping their trajectories in society and across boundaries.
