Shortly after this title's launch, Lord Allen of Abbeydale added a foreword which ended as follows:

In the light of all these changes, it is very fitting to be able to have recourse to authoritative and clear explanations of various aspects of charity law and practice which are up-to-date, and will be kept up-to¬ date. This is what this publication achieves. It gives expert guidance for example on how to set up a charity and, in a substantial section, on the responsibilities which fall on trustees in running a charity. It gives advice in the tricky areas of fund-raising, investment, taxation and trading. Nor does it fail to explore the possibility of difficulties arising with Brussels. With its comprehensive cover, it is a publication which will be primarily of value to practitioners, but it is not too much hope that some of the information and advice to be found in its pages will percolate to a wider audience.

Over the years, which have seen many more changes of law and practice and  nearly 100 releases, the editors have done their utmost to ensure that the work remains authoritative and up-to-date.
