Review

the authors provide an excellent treatment of the ways in which a club may participate in societal interactions, including a club's civil liablity. Mention should also be made of the useful appendices, containing statutes and precedents...I recommend this book to any solicitor dealing with clubs or unincorporated associations, including charities.
