Catherine Bond is an Associate Professor in the Faculty of Law, UNSW Sydney. While trained in intellectual property law, with a PhD thesis on the history of Australian copyright law, in 2016 she published her first book Anzac: The Landing, The Legend, The Law. As part of that work Catherine became interested in the little-considered topic of how law affected the Australian community during the First World War leading to this, her second book.
'Law in War gives us insights into the law and Australia's Great War that Charles Bean declined to publish ninety-odd years ago. Pioneering, full of wonderful life and energy, the result has been worth waiting for.' - Professor Peter Stanley, UNSW Canberra '...in the midst of this crisis it is hard to imagine a historical text timelier than Law in War: Freedom and restriction in Australia during the Great War. A century later, lessons from that era are still instructive today...Bond's latest book is engaging, insightful, and important.' - ABR
