The sixth edition of Ewan McKendrick's Contract Law: Text, Cases, and Materials provides a complete guide to the subject in a single volume, containing everything needed for the study of contract law at undergraduate level.

The book comprises a unique balance of 40% text to 60% cases and materials, combining the best features of a textbook with those of a traditional casebook. The author's clear explanations and analysis of the law provide invaluable support to students, while the extracts from cases and materials promote the development of essential case reading skills and allow for a more detailed appreciation of the practical workings of the law.
