Summary "Well established as the leading book in its field, 'The sale of goods' is widely used by students for the Law Society and Bar examinations and by university students in Britain and the Commonwealth. It is also relied on by practitioners wherever the 'Sale of Goods Act' is in force and has been cited in a number of cases by judges in the UK, New Zealand and Canada. This new sixth edition has been extensively revised to include the latest legislation. In particular it incorporates the 'Unfair Contract Terms Act 1977' and the consolidated version of the 'Sale of Goods Act 1979', as well as covering a number of further proposals for reform currently under discussion. Through successive editions the book has been found to be particularly helpful in its clarity of exposition for students; and also in discussing legal questions which have not been the subject of legal decisions." -- book cover
