Product description

The Annotated Constitution of the Australian Commonwealth, Revised Edition is a modern and accessible version of a classic text. This is a remarkable and unique text, which keeps on giving to us, the citizens, who are the true beneficiaries of the Constitution of the Commonwealth of Australia.

The 1901 Annotated version of the constitution By Quick and Garran was written quite shortly after the Australian Constitution was written.

This book offers interpretation of what the constitution actually means in law and how different sections, once combined with each other, offer greater clarity to each section and a deeper meaning.

  • Revised Layout providing easy navigation
  • Original page numbers
  • The Constitution is given extensive section by section treatment.
  • An extensive historical introduction to the Annotated Constitution of the Australian Commonwealth
  • Widely cited in both case law and scholarly writings
  • Table of High Court cases citing the 1901 edition

This review was first published in the Law Institute Journal Vol 89.08 September 2015
