"On looking through the book I was thrilled to see how good it looks and my special thanks to the person who thought to add the italics to various points of interest throughout the book. It's been a pleasure to see this book through to publication."
Hugh M Selby, author of most recently, Advocacy - Preparation and Performance
Advocacy and Expert Witness Trainer, Legal Workshop @ ANU, 10 July 2009

"...thank you for all your terrific work on Law and Liberty in the War on Terror which arrived here yesterday. It looks excellent and we are so very grateful for your enthusiasm for the concept and the way in which you facilitated its speedy conversion to the book which sits now on my desk! It is exactly five months since the symposium was held at which many of the chapters in the book were first delivered - and I think that is an incredible turn around time. It really was a great pleasure working with you to achieve this."
Dr Andrew Lynch, author of Law and Liberty on the War on Terror and Director, Terrorism and Law Project, Gilbert + Tobin Centre of Public Law, University of NSW, 7 December 2007

"We academics are very fortunate in having such an enterprising publisher to publish our works." 
Geoffrey Lindell, editor of, most recently, The Mason Papers3 September 2005

"Federation Press was my first choice as a publisher not just because I thought you were good, but because everyone had good things to say about you and everyone was right. It was a real pleasure from beginning to end." 
Suzanne Corcoran, author of Interpreting Statutes, 28 June 2005

Keep up the great service!!!"

- Mick O’Donnell, Griffith (NSW), 8 May 2008

"I ordered a book, A History of Criminal Law in NSW yesterday [21 December]; on-line at 13:05. The book was in my letterbox this morning; first thing. I would not have expected this level of service in normal times, but certainly not in the pre-Christmas rush. THANK-YOU!!"
