This book provides continental lawyers with a clear and accessible introduction to the basic principles of English commercial contract law, and their English counterparts with what may well be their first insight into equivalent Continental rules. Highlighted features of this publication include: - Clear but critical explanations of the general principles of the law, illustrated by modern precedents. - More than 100 new cases have been added since the 1992 Second Edition. - Use of typical commercial contract clauses, illustrating the practical significance of the rules in question and introducing students to the language of contracts. - Emphasis on commercial practice and the fundamental issues of offer and acceptance, consideration, terms, exclusions clauses, risk,. mistake, misrepresentation, frustration, and remedies for breach. - Interesting and instructive comparisons with Commonwealth and American developments in case law and statute, combined with appropriate references to the Vienna Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods. Appendices contain the full text of the Convention, together with the important, new Unfair Terms in Consumer Contracts Regulations. - Commentaries on comparable aspects of Danish, Dutch, French, German, Italian, Spanish and (new to this edition), Swedish law written by practitioners and academics of the countries in question.
