High Praise. "Australian Constitutional Landmarks" by H.P. Lee and George Winterton (eds). [review]
Even if there is a little hyperbole, the book demonstrates in a readable way how, when it has faced major tests concerning the welfare of the Australian Commonwealth, the High Court has usually come down on the side of wisdom. No doubt an alternative book could be written on the mistakes, failings and wrong turnings of the judges. In Australia, too much praise is strangely unsettling.
