An authoritative and comprehensive examination of the principles of law governing the compulsory acquisition of land in Australia.

· Primary judges who are called upon to determine just compensation to the owners of compulsorily acquired land;
· Appellate judges who are called upon to determine whether the primary judge's determination is just according to law;
