This is the new edition of the well-established Anson's Law of Contract renowned for offering an accurate statement of the law and its underlying principles.

Professor Jack Beatson presents an authoritative, fully revised and updated account of contract law, including discussion of such key legislation as the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act, 1999, The Electronic Communications Act, 2000, and The Unfair Terms and Consumer Contracts Regulations, 1999.

The author adopts a modern approach to the subject and offers the reader the security of an accurate and clear statement of the law and its underlying principles.
