The second edition of this widely-acclaimed book about the Equality Act 2010 by one of its leading architects brings forward the story of how and why this historic legislation was enacted and what it means, to cover the first four years of its implementation by the Coalition Government and in the courts. This includes an assessment of amendments to the legislation, the reduction in the powers and budget of the Equality and Human Rights Commission and the imposition of tribunal fees, as well as a discussion of possible future directions of equality law and policy. From the Foreword to the first edition by Lord Lester of Herne Hill QC 'This is no ordinary law book, and its author is no ordinary lawyer. The book, like the Equality Act 2010 which it describes and discusses, is a major landmark in the long struggle for effective legal protection of equal rights and equal treatment without direct or indirect discrimination, it places the law in is political, economic and social context and traces its often contested and controversial legal history.'. "...the first in-depth academic analysis of this complex and wide-ranging legislation...sure to be one of the leading points of reference for future scholars. The book is very well written in a style that happily blends accessible and captivating commentary with perceptive insight and reflection...a valuable introduction to the field. At the same time, there is a richness and depth that will make this book stimulating for the specialists in equality law, whether academic or practitioner.stimulating, thought provoking and a worthwhile investment for scholars and students of equality law". Mark Bell, Social and Legal Studies "...admirably fulfils the aim of informing the general reader as well as students of law and social sciences, human rights activists and lawyers. It will also be essential reading for all those who want to understand the past, present and future of discrimination law" Maleiha Malik, Industrial Law Journal
