"[Woolman] marshals a wealth of evidence in support of his argument and has clearly digested and synthesised a very wide range of literature. Indeed, the book reads in part like a modern-day version of the great 18th century works of political economy." Professor Theunis Roux, School of Global and Public Law, University of Sydney
