Review "Throughout, Maddox treats the various elements of mortgages in--as the title suggests--both law and in practice and he seems, to this reviewer, to have achieved an excellent balance between exposition and application in this endeavour. In his preface, Dr Maddox notes that the High Court mortgages list is now under "the careful stewardship" of Justice Dunne, who wrote the foreword. To that it can be added that those acting in cases on that list are recommended to have recourse to this careful, well-researched, clearly written and thoughtful volume."
