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.
