Previous editions of this text have consistently been a favourite amongst common law lawyers. This new edition has been brought fully up to date and will be of interest to those studying 'advanced' obligations/common law modules. Undergraduates who study contract courses with a strong socio-legal tradition will also find this text invaluable as it uniquely grounds the nature of contract law in its social and political context.
