Basic Contract Law
The Eighth Edition continues the approach of earlier editions in emphasizing rich, full-bodied versions of the principal cases, and a functionalist approach to the problems of contract law. The new edition includes a great number of new principal cases and case notes, as well as longer, analytical notes on such issues as the differences between classical and modern contract law, the role of the limits of cognition in contract law, and the role of probability in measuring uncertain contract damages. The emphasis of previous editions on international contract law continues in this new edition.
