Contract law: a comparative introduction
This innovative and accessible text offers a straightforward and clear introduction to the law of contract suitable for use across geographical boundaries.
Unlike most other texts – which tend either to introduce students to the national contract law of their own country, or else to offer global and comparative perspectives to advanced students already familiar with the basics – this book offers a unique introduction to contract law by means of a comparative approach. It treats contract law as a discipline that can be studied on the basis of common principles and methods without being tied to a particular jurisdiction or legal culture.
Perfectly pitched for international students and courses with a global outlook, Contract Law: A Comparative Introduction puts contract law in context by discussing empirical and economic insights.
• Introduces key principles by comparing solutions from different jurisdictions
• Wide variety of sources including German, English, French and Dutch law, European and international instruments, and examples from Central and Eastern Europe and Islamic contract law
• Discusses economic and empirical approaches where appropriate
• Focus on legal method as well as substantive law
• Innovative design uses text boxes, colour and graphics, making it an attractive tool for studying
Designed with undergraduate courses in mind, the book also offers an excellent introduction to the field for anyone else interested in contract law. The innovative approach and engaging design of the book make it ideally suited for studying contract law in an international way, as well as for courses on comparative contract law.
