Cheshire, Fifoot & Furmston's Law of Contract stands as one of the classic textbooks on contract law more than 50 years after the publication of the first edition. Michael Furmston combines an authoritative account of the principles of the law of contract with thought-provoking analysis and insights, and the clarity of the narrative brings understanding of complex contractual issues to a wider readership. Each topic is clearly signposted for ease of navigation, and the text contains numerous references to additional primary and secondary sources to take the reader even further into the subject. The text is invaluable to students reading courses in contract, the law of obligations, and common law and is often used as a first point of reference for practitioners.
