This convenient compendium brings together selected key essays spanning the career of Professor Sir Roy Goode, arguably the most influential law scholar of the last-half century.

Addressing the fundamental concepts and policy issues of English domestic commercial law, and regularly referred to today by scholars and practicing lawyers; these innovative and forward-thinking essays broke new ground at the time of their original publication.

The essays are grouped thematically into sections, each accompanied by an introduction from the author which sets the essays in their historical and modern context. This valuable authorial insight illuminates the way the law has developed since, and often as a result of, the publication of the papers. Further new material, written especially for this volume, includes a new essay 'Res Cogitans: Food for Thought'.
