Harvey and Parry: The Law of Consumer Protection and Fair Trading is a clear, succint and comprehensive account of an increasingly complex field. The book presents the subject in the light of the opening chapter's exploration of the historical, political, economic and philosophical background to consumer protection.

The new edition includes an extensive chapter on the impact of the EU on consumer protection law and almost uniquely continues to examine the patterns of consumer protection in the former nationalised sectors, including the controversial and complex semi-privatisation of the railway network. There is also extensive treatment of the main civil law building blocks of the subject, including consumer credit, unfair contracts, product liability and the consumer aspects of sale of goods.

The criminal or regulatory side includes extensive chapters on trade descriptions, fair trading and safety. Weights and measures and food law are also introduced, subjects which though vital for some readers are usually omitted from student texts. The institutions, public or private, set up to assist consumers are also examined.This new edition is thoroughly updated to include all the latest;""
