This book contains the papers prepared for a conference held at the Wisconsin Law School in 2011 to honour the work of Stewart Macaulay, one of the most famous contracts scholars of his generation. Macaulay has been writing about contracts and contract law for over 50 years; the 1960s were particularly productive years for him, when he introduced many novel ideas into the scholarly world. Macaulay's foundational work for what is now called relational contract theory was published during this period. Macaulay is also known for his use of empirical research and interdisciplinary theories to illuminate our knowledge of contracting practices.The papers in this volume reflect, in diverse ways, on the subsequent influence and the contemporary relevance of Macaulay's work. All the contributors are important contracts scholars in their own right: David Campbell and John Wightman from the UK, Brian Bix, Jay Feinman, Robert Gordon, Claire Hill, Charles Knapp, Ethan Leib, Deborah Post, Edward Rubin, Carol Sanger, Robert Scott, Gordon Smith, Josh Whitford (with Li-Wen Lin) and William Woodward from the USA. The volume also reproduces Macaulay's most cited paper, 'Non-Contractual Relations in Business', and excerpts from two other important papers of his, 'Private Legislation and the Duty to Read-Business Run by IBM Machine, the Law of Contracts and Credit Cards', and 'The Real and The Paper Deal: Empirical Pictures of Relationships, Complexity and the Urge for Transparent Simple Rules'.

Review:

... a highly recommendable text. The essays commenting on Macaulay's work go beyond simple reviews. They often present novel, insightful, and sometimes challenging perspectives on the subject that fifty years ago, Macaulay began unpacking. Together these essays capture the arc of not only Macaulay's scholarship, but also the intellectual tradition that preceded his work and advances that have been built upon it. (Richard R. W. Brooks Wisconsin Law Review, Volume 2013, Issue 6)

This new book, offering a multi-authored retrospective of Macaulay's work.offers a useful opportunity to those less familiar with Macaulay to assess the relevance and importance of his scholarship to modern contract law; those already familiar with Macaulay's writing will appreciate the detailed critique of his scholarship contained within the work.

.this is an excellent collection of essays on the scholarship of a leading figure in US contract law.for anyone wishing either an introduction to relational contract theory or a thorough examination of both its present state and its potential for developing specific areas of contract law, this is an excellent place to look. (Martin Hogg The Edinburgh Law Review, Volume 17)
