This clear and highly accessible volume, presented in a coherent structure, provides full coverage of the topics commonly found in the contract law syllabus, alongside up-to-date illustrative case examples and stimulating commentary.

Written by leading authors in the field, this book takes account of a variety of theoretical perspectives, including economic, relational and empirical conceptions of the law. A meticulous and insightful commentary is provided throughout, illuminating complex areas of law and promoting more detailed analysis of important issues.

Composed of one-quarter authors’ commentaries and three-quarters cases and materials, including academics' articles and extracts from books and Law Commission papers, this book facilitates the development of personal study skills and encourages readers to engage with the leading academic commentaries in the area, (extracts are included from the Principles of European Contract Law to create a solid foundation for comparative analysis). Clearly signposted chapter introductions (with short table of contents to aid navigation) highlight the salient features under discussion and learning support is provided in a regularly updated companion website. Additional reading collected at the end of each chapter guides further study and independent research.

The range of material covered and the straightforward style makes this book an invaluable resource for all undergraduate students of contract law.
