Description:

This new edition of Patrick Atiyah's An Introduction to the Law of Contract offers a clear and comprehensive account of this area of law. This latest edition, by Stephen Smith, has been completely revised and updated to place the law of contract in a modern context. Combining coverage of the law with an account of perspectives on contract law, Smith addresses European influences on the subject and takes all key changes and developments in the law and current literature intoaccount. The aims of the book, however, remain unchanged: to supply a basic introduction, not merely to the law of contract, but also to theories, policies and ideas underlying the subject. In particular, the book discusses whether and how the various parts of contract law fit together, the underlying aimsthat contract law does or should promote, and the historical evolution of the area. This remains a stimulating and innovative introduction for all students coming to contract law for the first time.
