The first edition of this book contained a revised and expanded series of lectures delivered by Sir Roy Goode at the Centre for Commercial Law Studies in 1982, and set out to explore a range of conceptual problems which arise from fixed and floating security.
Since publication, the work has become a key text for students and practising lawyers alike and is regularly cited by courts and in legal literature.
In this sixth edition, the third edited by Louise Cullifer, the framework of the previous editions has been retained and the book continues to be an exploration of the fundamental concepts of common law and equity as they affect typical secured transactions.
The book has been comprehensively updated to take account of:-
