This is the second edition of the widely acclaimed and successful casebook on Contract in the Ius Commune Series, developed to be used throughout Europe and aimed at those who teach, learn or practice law with a comparative or European perspective.

The book contains the basic texts and contrasting cases as well as extracts from the various international restatements (Vienna Sales Convention, UNIDROIT, Principles of European Contract Law and so on).

Materials are chosen and ordered so as to foster comparative study, and complemented with annotations and comparative overviews prepared by a multinational team. The whole Casebook is in English.

The principal subjects covered in this book include: General; Formation; Validity; Interpretation and Contents; Supervening Events; Remedies; Third Parties; The Tort/Contract Divide; Causation; Remedies; Fault and Unlawfulness; Liability for Others; Liability not based on fault as well as defences.
