This highly regarded work is cited extensively in court and in textbooks touching on the subject. Since publication of the 4th edition much statutory and case law development has taken place, such as the Insolvency Act 1986, the Companies Act 1985, the Financial Services Act 1986, the Banking Act 1987, the Unfair Contract Terms Directive and the UK regulations. This edition has been updated to reflect these changes.

  • Includes chapters on conflict of laws and unfair terms in consumer contract guarantees
  • Discusses developments in the area of undue influence and misrepresentation as exemplified in the House of Lords' decision in Barclays Bank plc v. O'Brien [1994]
  • International appeal - incorporates Commonwealth and US authorities where relevant.
