Although Australia focused, it also makes reference to the law, and the law reform initiatives, in other common law jurisdictions, including the UK, NZ and US. It works as an exposition of the law pertaining to charitable objects and encompasses observations pertaining to the charitable sector, regulation of charitable fundraising, and has a separate part devoted to the reform of charity law."--Publisher description.
