Following its publication in 2000, this work quickly established itself as a key point of reference on English private law for lawyers in the UK and throughout the world. The book acts as an accessible first point of reference for practitioners approaching a private law issue for the first time, whilst simultaneously providing a lucid, concise and authoritative overview of all the key areas of private law. Each section is written by an acknowledged expert, using their experience and understanding to provide a clear distillation and analysis of the subject.
This new edition includes all the recent developments since the publication of the first edition and the two supplements, the last of which published in 2003. It has also been expanded to include coverage of a number of key areas that were previously not addressed, including insurance, banking and carriage of goods by land and air. In addition, the chapters on land and companies have undergone extensive revision and the section on civil procedure has been fully revised to reflect current law and practice.
No other single text provides such comprehensive and lucid coverage of the whole of English Private Law as this one. It has come to be regarded as an essential item for every law library, reflecting its appeal to both English practitioners and those working in other jurisdictions. At the same time the book's depth of analysis, combined with its ease of reference, make it a favorite among academics and students worldwide.

Review from previous edition: "I find it to be a unique achievement among scholarly law books, and am continually surprised at the depth of analysis offered by a book that appears to offer a bird's eye view of English Private Law...It is written by undoubted experts...it is lucid, succinct, and yet it is immensely broad in its scope..." -- Professor Sir John H Baker, University of Cambridge
