Rezensionen
"The book is very well compiled, the panel of contributors well chosen and it reads coherently-aided by the chronological order of studies. ... This provides us with a very clear and detailed illustration of the maxim in the introduction that 'taxation is first and foremost a political issue', and that the formulation and implementation of taxation initiatives are determined politically rather than for ideological or philosophical reasons." (Ciarán Mac an Bhaird, Studia Hibernica, Vol. 45, 2019)
