Now available in paperback, this volume offers essays by leading contract scholars. Each essay takes as its focus a particular leading case in the UK, and analyzes that case in its historical or theoretical context. The book's cases range from the early 18th to the late 20th century, and deal with an array of contractual doctrines. Some of the book's contributors call for their cases to be stripped of landmark status, while others argue that some cases have more to offer than previously considered. The particular historical context of these landmark UK cases, as revealed by the contributors, often show that the current assumptions about the case and what it stands for are either mistaken or require radical modification. The book also explores several common themes which are fundamental to the development of the law of contract: for instance, the influence of commercial expectations, appeals to 'reason,' and the significance of particular judicial ideologies and techniques. (Series: Landmark Cases) [Subject: Contract Law, Legal History]

About the Author:

Charles Mitchell is Professor of Law at University College London.

Review:

The work presents a refreshing take on the cases examined.
Australian Banking and Finance Law Bulletin

Landmark Cases in the Law of Contract is a worthwhile collection of essays to have in any library, private or public...one is kept in suspense over the nature of the essay about to be encountered, and the delightful spread ranges from the historical to the doctrinal to the theoretical-more than enough to satisfy anyone interested in the law of contract generally or specifically.
Singapore Journal of Legal Studies

...the particular interest of the essays lies in the background historical, legal, economic and social material which the authors uncover. That a case is a landmark would, one might think, mean that it had received so much attention that there is not much new to say about it. But this is far from being so, and the fascinating background material provided in the book is almost always an intriguing pleasure to read.
