This book complements 'black letter' treatments of contract by looking at legal doctrine and statutes in their social. political and economic context. In addition to describing the key doctrines in the field it explains the ideology behind them and considers the extent to which they serve the needs of the business community and consumers. The book aims to broaden understanding and appreciation of the subject by reference to the 'big ideas' in contract theory and how these relate to practice at a level which is suitable for students.

This latest edition of an established text has been substantially revised. The chapters on standard form contracts. government contracts. contract and competition. and clauses regularly found in business contracts have been updated. In addition there are new chapters on contemporary critiques of contract and dispute resolution in the post Woolf era which introduce students to challenging new ideas about the modern day role of contract.
