Daniel J Carr, University of Edinburgh, Edinburgh Law Review This edited collection brings together a number of leading scholars, one might say an all-star cast, to consider an area of law which, in recent years, has become increasingly topical. The editors are also admirably ambitious for the book, believing that it will set the agenda for philosophical study of fiduciary law for generations to come. Only the passage of time can vindicate that claim; but the coverage and quality of the collection go a long way to
justifying such an expectation.
