This collection of essays brings together the work of many of the world's leading Contract Law scholars. It focuses upon a common central theme—-the question of good faith and fair dealing in the Law of Contract. The book is divided into several parts: the first part is an Introduction; Part II examines the requirement of good faith and its role in the formation of contracts; Part III is concerned with contractual obligations; Part IV examines Breach of Contract and Remedial Issues. The work will be of widespread interest to scholars of Private Law in both Common and Civil Law jurisdictions.
Readership: Scholars and practitioners of law interested in the Law of Contract,
Restitution and Private Law.
Edited by Jack Beatson, Rouse Ball Professor of English Law, University of Cambridge; Fellow, St John's College, Cambridge, and Daniel Friedman, Professor of Law, University of Tel Aviv
"excellent collection of essays.../ It is an extremely important contribution to the burgeoning literature on fairness, good faith and contract theory more generally./ ... it is most appropriate as backup reading for students doing courses in contract, commercial or consumer law at undergraduate and postgraduate level... it will be very important backup reading, as it has something to say on most of the key areas in a contract law course./ Chris Willett, University of Warwick, Student Law Review, Spring 1999, Vol 26."
