BOOK: "Studies in the History of Tax Law, Volume 7", Peter Harris, Dominic de Cogan (edit.) (Oxford, September 2015)

Peter Harris, Dominic de Cogan (edit.), Studies in the History of Tax Law, Volume 7

These are the papers from the 2014 Cambridge Tax Law History Conference revised and reviewed for publication. The papers fall within six basic themes. Two papers focus on colonialism and empire dealing with early taxation in colonial New Zealand and New South Wales. Two papers deal with fiscal federalism; one on Australia in the first half of the twentieth century and the other with salt tax in China. Another two papers are international in character; one considers development of the first Australia-United States tax treaty and the other development of the first League of Nations model tax treaties. Four papers focus on UK income tax; one on capital gains, another on retention at source, a third on the use of finance bills and the fourth on establishment of the Board of Referees. Three papers deal with tax and status; one with the tax profession, another with the medical profession and a third with aristocrats. The final three papers deal with tax theorists, one with David Hume, another with the scholarship of John Tiley and a final paper on the tax state in the global era.

  • Peter Harris is Professor of Tax Law, and Dominic de Cogan is University Lecturer in Tax Law, both in the Law Faculty in the University of Cambridge.
