New book – Law in War

A new book by ANZLHS member Associate Professor Catherine Bond, titled Law in War: Freedom and restriction in Australia during the Great War, was released by NewSouth Publishing on 1 April. The book examines the legal experiences of a range of individuals living in Australia during the First World War, including those who wrote the law, those who enforced the law and those who were imprisoned under the law, among others. Law in War reveals the injustice and discrimination perpetuated by Australia’s wartime regime, done in the name of victory in war.

About anzlhswebsite

The Australian and New Zealand Law and History Society was formed in 1993. It is an interdisciplinary group of scholars who share an interest in the connections between law and history. The society grew out of the annual Law in History Conferences, which have been running since 1982. Members of the society include historians, lawyers, academics and others interested in the area. Most of the members live in Australia or New Zealand, but their areas of interest are not confined to the law in those places. The society is an incorporated association in New South Wales.
