Smith & Thomas the leading Casebook on Contract Law for over 40 years, returns in a new edition under the respected authorship of Professor Roger Brownsword. Well known for the quality and authoritative nature of the analysis and comprehensive coverage of the law, Smith & Thomas illustrates the key elements of contract law.

The new edition has been updated to reflect current reform proposals and include coverage of the principles of European contract law. The accessibility of the text through the organisation of ideas and cases with the inclusion of questions at the end of cases and model answers makes this an ideal student text for all contract law courses.
