Taking contract doctrine seriously leads to an engagement with deeper questions about the grounds of contractual obligation, the importance of contract law in reality and the nature of change within the law. Providing a commentary on orthodox descriptive accounts of the law of contract, this book focuses on consumer contract, and sees the need for the legislative rescue of consumers as a symptom of past doctrinal failure in the general law.
