This new book Carter's Breach of Contract is an expanded and updated edition of Breach of Contract, published in two editions by the Law Book Co, the last being published in 1991. It established itself as the leading text on the subject in the Commonwealth, being regularly cited by the courts, including the High Court of Australia.

Its central thesis was approved by the High Court in Koompahtoo Local Aboriginal Land Council v Sanpine Pty Ltd [2007] HCA 61. 2011 and this year sees the publication of a new and expanded work, under the title Carter's Breach of Contract. The work is comprehensive in relation to both English and Australian law.

Moreover, by drawing on decisions in the United States, Singapore and New Zealand, the American Law Institute's Restatement of Contract, 2d as well as the Uniform Commercial Code (US) and the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods, the work has a unique comparative dimension.
