This second edition of Extinctive Prescription aims to reflect the law as developed by judgments and statutory changes over a period of more than twenty years since the publication of the first edition. 

The principles of extinctive prescription have been scrutinised by the courts in numerous reported cases over this period, including prominent judgments of the Constitutional Court dealing with the justification for extinctive prescription, the concept of ‘debt’, and the knowledge requirement for prescription to begin to run. This edition also examines the principles governing the co-existence of the 1969 Prescription Act and prescription or time limitation provisions in other statutes, with reference to certain prominent examples. A new chapter 12 deals with procedure. Reported cases continue to illustrate the practical importance of extinctive prescription and the thorough analysis of theory and policy required for its application.
