    Two recent volumes add substantially to the literature on class actions, or representative proceedings as they are known in the Federal Court of Australia. One, written by an Australian academic living in the United Kingdom, presents information on a number of different jurisdictions including the Federal Court. The other is from two Australian practitioners, providing detailed commentary as well as useful primary material in the form of Hansard excerpts and precedents. While they contain some surprises in terms of the depth of analysis and recognition of broader issues, both books should prove immensely useful to tort lawyers from all walks of life.
