Carter's Breach of Contract is well established as the leading text on the subject in the Commonwealth, having been cited regularly and with approval by the courts in a number of jurisdictions. JW Carter is Emeriyus Professor of Law, University of Sydney, General Editor of the Journal of Contract Law and a Consultant to Herbert Smith Freehills

The work is comprehensive in relation to both English and Australian law. Moreover, by drawing on decisions in the United States, Singapore and New Zealand, the American Law Institute's Restatement of Contract, (2nd) as well as the Uniform Commercial Code (US) and the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods, the work has a unique comparative dimension. It will therefore be a valuable resource for scholars, practicing lawyers and students of contract law.

This new edition retains the hallmark of the previous edition: its statement of the law of breach of contract in a series of articles, which codify the law as a set of brief statements of principle. These articles are also reproduced in the Appendix, and together with an extensive bibliography and index and tables, make this the ideal first port of call for all questions relating to breach of contract.
