"The Ontario Class Proceedings Act, 1992 represented a major innovation in civil procedure. Suzanne Chiodo's book ... looks at the origins of representative proceedings in equity, the rise of modern-day class actions around the world (particularly in the United States and Quebec), and at the debates about the Ontario legislation. The book presents an ... analysis of the political and social influences that shaped this momentous legal change. It explains for the first time how the Attorney General's Advisory Committee Report in 1990 pulled together so many divergent interests where previous attempts had failed."--Provided by publisher.
