This textbook takes a fresh approach to contract law; as a first edition it reflects the subject in the 21st century more accurately than other texts. Comprehensive and scholarly, it maps the curriculum perfectly but detailed references and further reading sections encourage students to explore the subject further. Understanding is paramount and chapter introductions clearly guide students through the material. The textbook takes an innovative approach to case law: breaking down and discussing individual elements of a case and selecting short key extracts it gives students the tools to read cases independently and with confidence. An examination of the historical and theoretical foundations of the subject and a concluding chapter tracking emerging fields ensure the broadest possible perspective. Discussion of key recent cases such as Durham Tess Valley Airport (2010) and Chartbrook (2009) make this important new text a must for contract law students.

LLB courses in universities (Foundation subject) and CPE/Diploma courses (core subject). University of London (External) LLB. ILEX courses (para-legals).Postgraduate LLMs in contract law. This major new textbook on contract law is arranged around a transactional analysis. This brings into clearer focus two important episodes in the life of a contract - the negotiation phase and the modification phase. These two episodes are either neglected or examined in a piecemeal way by traditional doctrinally arranged texts. Throughout the book the transactional approach is informed by contextual, empirical and theoretical writing. It also discusses in depth other parts of the law of obligations (e.g. restitution, tort and estoppel) where they impinge on its subject. Overall, this is an original, challenging, academically oriented but also practically satisfying text for modern contract courses, reflecting modern economic reality.

This comparative study of European and Chinese contract law opens a clear and practical way to identify and understand the differences between the two legal regimes. The author offers a detailed doctrinal comparison of the two systems of contract, focusing on the following fundamental elements: * the importance of socio-economic valuation in Chinese contract law; * the role of judicial interpretation; * pre-contractual liability - penalties for bad faith, disclosure versus concealment; * validity - mistake, fraud, threats, unfair bargaining power; * adaptation and termination - effect of registration and approval rules; * mandatory rules - good faith and fair dealing, the public interest; and * direct application of constitutional law to contracts. The book's special power lies in its extraordinarily thorough comparison of doctrines underlying specific provisions of such instruments as the Contract Law of the People's Republic of China (CLC), the General Principles of the Civil Law of the People's Republic of China (GPCL), the Principles of European Contract Law (PECL), and the Draft Common Frame of Reference (DCFR), as well as analysis of judicial cases.
