Recently the contract section of the German Code was radically amended after one hundred years of un-altered existence. The German Law of Contract, radically recast, enlarged, and re-written now details and explains for the first time these changes for the benefit of Anglophone lawyers.

Along with its companion work, The German Law of Torts, the two volumes provide, in a total of some 2,000 pages, one of the fullest accounts of the German Law of Obligations available in the English (or German) language. One hundred and twenty translated contract decisions, coming from the pens of distinguished academics such as F. H. Lawson, Kurt Lipstein, Tony Weir and Raymond Youngs, added to the one hundred and fifty tort cases already published in the companion tort volume, make this work a unique source-book for students, practitioners, judges and academics wishing to have access to prime sources.

Through its method of presentation of German law, the book also represents an original contribution to the art of comparison. An additional feature of the Contract volume is the way in which it reveals the growing impact which European Directives are having on the traditional, liberal, contract model, thereby bringing German and English law closer to each other, especially in the area of consumer protection.
