This new edition of An Outline of the Law of Agency by Markesinis and Munday will enable students to acquire a sound and critical understanding of the law of agency by providing a succinct, readable account of this significant and intellectually challenging branch of law.

Among the many notable legal developments in this area of law since the publication of the third edition six years ago, which have been fully noted in this edition, are the entry into force in 1994 of the Commercial Agents (Council Directive) Regulations 1993, the appearance of the first English case law on this distinctive european directive, and judicial extension of such concepts as 'apparent authority' and 'warranty of authority'.An Outline of the Law of Agency aims to complement existing standard works of reference.

It can stand both on its own as an independent self-contained textbook where greater emphasis is laid upon principles than upon matters of technical detail, and also as an introductory book preparing the way for more detailed study of the subject. The combination of text and materials will offer students a general introduction to the subject which is stimulating, but above all, clear and concise.
