This book is a welcome addition to literature in a field which hadn't received much attention from jurists in the past few years and according to the editors by comparison to other areas of private law, the law of succession has been neglected by modern scholars (vii). With the Reform of Customary Law of Succession and Regulation of Related Matters Bill 10 - 2008 - which particularly deals with deceased estates involving those who die intestate but subject to customary law - currently before the South African parliament, any enlightening contribution to research in this field of law, such as this volume, will be a relevant and valuable contribution.
