In a text that originally formed the opening chapter to Butterworths Common Law Series - The Law of Contract (1999), Roger Brownsword explores the key themes of contract law as it enters the twenty-first century. The positive critical response to his in-depth discussion of a number of issues, including the range of classical and modern influences over the current law, has led to this publication of the chapter as a book.

Contract Law: Themes for the Twenty-First Century looks at the context in which contract law has developed in recent years, and considers the difficulties in keeping contract law in line with reasonable expectations, given the ever-evolving nature of English law. The publication of this book is intended to bring Professor Brownsword's expert commentary on the major principles of contract to a wider readership. The commentary will be of particular assistance to students seeking an overview of the principal themes of the law of contract.""
