This is the second edition of the widely acclaimed and successful casebook on contract law developed to be used throughout Europe and aimed at those who teach, learn, or practice law with a comparative or European perspective. The book contains leading cases, legislation, and other materials from the legal traditions within Europe, with a focus on English, French, and German law as the main representatives of those traditions. The book contains the basic texts and contrasting cases, as well as extracts from the various international restatements: Vienna Sales Convention, UNIDROIT, Principles of European Contract Law, etc. Materials are chosen and ordered so as to foster comparative study, and are complemented with annotations and comparative overviews prepared by a multinational team. The principal subjects covered include: formation, validity, interpretation and contents, supervening events, remedies, third parties, the tort/contract divide, causation, remedies, fault and unlawfulness, liability for others, liability not based on fault, and defenses.

The text should be admired for the boldness of its undertaking and its use of a wealth of international and comparative law materials...It is perfect for an upper level course in Comparative Contract Law or European Contract Law both in Europe and in other countries. The text is a marvellous resource or treatise for new academics and all levels of academics outside the EU. The book blends historical information as well as recognising current trends. Although the book is mostly filled with excerpts of the many sources, the authors provide sufficient commentary to help the reader place the materials in their legal contexts and to use the materials for illustrative purposes. The authors provide sufficient introductions and concluding remarks on the topics discussed, as well as copious notes. The text not only taps into primary sources but also mines the depths of legal scholarship. This text is a must read for anyone interested in the development of contract law in the Western legal tradition. Larry A. Dimatteo European Review of Private Law Volume 5, 2011 ...un outil incontournable pour mieux comprendre une matière à la fois très ancienne mais immanquablement évolutive. Dionysios Kélésidis Contrats Publics July-August 2005 'The first edition of this text was already a great piece of work but this updated and expanded version is outstanding and a great resource for any university library. It is clearly set out with an impressive depth and level of detail. I would also give credit to the thorough tables of legislation, cases and index (something that is often poorly done in other academic texts, but is always worth taking the time to do well). European contract law has evolved considerably since the first edition and the authors have dealt with this very clearly.' Dr. Rachael Lorna Johnstone, University of Akureyri, Iceland As a research tool for anyone working in contract law, it is indispensible and should be held by every current or aspiring professor of contract law as well as every law library in Europe.
