The first cumulative supplement to this essential first point of reference on English private law covers all developments in the key areas of this subject up to December 2001. It will be an essential purchase for all who have already bought the main work, and maintains the currency of the (two volume) main work itself.;

Edited by the Regius Professor of Civil Law at Oxford University, Peter Birks, each updating section is written by an acknowledged expert, bringing to bear their experience and understanding to provide a clear distillation and analysis of the relevant subject.;The format of the supplement complements the main work, with chapters grouped into five main parts: sources of law; law of persons; law of property; law of obligations; and litigation. In each case, leading experts have detailed developments in their own specialist area of the law, for instance: Dr Stephen Cretney - Family Law; Prof. Sir Guenter Treitel - Contract; Prof. Francis Reynolds - Agency, and Carriage of Goods; and Prof. Peter Birks - Unjust Enrichment.;This cumulative supplement will fit neatly into the slip case which houses the two handsomely-bound volumes of the main work. The main work and first cumulative supplement are also available together as a set (ISBN 0199255768: GBP170).
