Summary "Ewan McKendrick provides a comprehensive guide to contract law in this single volume containing everything an undergraduate needs - an accessible and engaging text, along with extracts from key cases and materials." "The rules of law are discussed and analysed in a transactional and transnational context, enabling students to gain a firm understanding of the doctrines and controversies of the modern law of contract. The extracts from materials such as the Principles of European Contract Law and the UNIDROIT Principles of International Commercial Contracts encourage critical reflection upon the state of English contract law. Specimen clauses are also cited to demonstrate some of the practical problems that confront both businessmen and lawyers, offering students working examples of complex issues."--BOOK JACKET
