In this unique volume, Roger Brownsword provides a thoughtful overview of the principal themes of the law of contract. He explores the context of the recent development of contract law, and considers the many changes the law has undergone given the ever-evolving nature of English law.

This accessible text brings Brownsword's expert commentary to a wider readership, and has been fully updated and revised to include recent issues and cases, including the Europeanization of contract law and the Great Peace Shipping case.

New to this edition:-

  • An introductory chapter and conclusion have been added to make the text more accessible to its student readership
  • Includes discussion of recent cases/legislation such as the Great Peace Shipping case and the Human Rights Act, making it an ideal up-to-date supplementary text for undergraduates
  • The issue of contextual interpretation is addressed, together with a discussion on the Europeanization of contract law, which further broadens its appeal across different contract courses
  • Includes a discussion of a range of classical and modern influences over the current law, which provides a contextual background to inform students' studies
