This text on consumer law contains materials drawn from a broad range of sources and includes extracts from: cases and statutes; Government and Law Commission reports; and publications produced by the Office of Fair Trading and the National Consumer Council. It also incorporates materials illustrating the approach of other jurisdictions, most notably within the Commonwealth, North America and continental Europe.

The ever-increasing influence of the European Community is apparent throughout this work and the extracts (many of which are not readily accessible elsewhere) are introduced, linked and contextualised by extensive commentary, notes, problems and questions for discussion.

The work takes full account of the major statutory changes since the last edition, for example, the Consumer Protection Act 1987, the Sale and Supply of Goods Act 1994, the Package Travel, Package Holidays and Package Tours Regulations 1992, the Unfair Terms in Consumer Contracts Regualtions 1994 and the General Product Safety Regulations 1994.
