This best-selling, classic text provides a clear and straightforward account of the basic rules of contract law, while also introducing current debates about the nature, scope and functions of the law and discussing wider controversies surrounding the basic doctrines. Praised time and again by both lecturers and students, Contract Law is compact yet comprehensive, well-written, well-structured, stimulating and engaging. This new eleventh edition has been fully revised and updated to reflect recent changes in the law. It is essential reading for all students taking undergraduate and GDL/CPE courses in contract law.
