Our deliberate objective is to state what the position is, as we understand it, not what we think it ought to be or whether it is justified. We are legal practitioners, ahnd academic analysis or criticism is better done by others more qualified to do so. Our intention is to try to explain a somewhat misty field of law that has been largely ignorred by writers, especially for the benefit of those who have to grapple with the wide variety of problems thrown up in the administration of these British territories. At the same time, we hope that this book will be of general interest to lawyers and others, touching as it dooes on constitutional, international, human rights, and European Union law, always in the context of the organisation and operation of small jurisdictions in a close relationship with the United Kingdom". -- PREFACE."@en ;
