This is the second edition of a work which offers comprehensive coverage of the relevant UK and European Community law with a critical analysis of that law. The book, unusually, deals in detail with Northern Ireland's fair employment legislation as well as the law relating to sex, race and disability discrimination and equal pay. Structured so as to be accessible to the student approaching discrimination law for the first time, the book is sufficiently detailed and analytical to appeal to the well-informed reader, and to provide those engaged in research with a solid base for further independent study. For the undergraduate student studying discrimination law as a free-standing subject or as part of a wider course, the book provides a "one stop shop"; for the postgraduate student, too, it provides a challenging core text for any discrimination law course.
