David Harris (Emeritus Professor at the University of Nottingham), Michael O'Boyle (Former Deputy Registrar at the European Court of Human Rights), Ed Bates (Associate Professor at the University of Leicester) and Carla M. Buckley (International Human Rights Lawyer) have just published the fifth edition of their textbook entitled Law of the European Convention on Human Rights. The textbook provides a comprehensive guide to the Convention, article by article. Here is a brief description:
''This seminal text offers a comprehensive account of the case law of the ECHR and its underlying principles. It provides a guide to decisions under the Convention and its protocols, article by article, as well as explaining the history and likely development of the law.
- Critically examines the substantive content of each of the basic rights of the Convention and successive Protocols, as well as explaining the history and likely development of the law
- Sets the Convention in its international context by examining its relationship with national and European Union law
- Fully explores the extent of the Convention's influence on the legal development of the contracting states, and reveals exactly how such a powerful authority has been achieved and maintained''
