Overview

This is the new sixth edition of Atiyah's Introduction to the Law of Contract that offers a clear and comprehensive account of this area of law. This latest edition, by Stephen Smith, retains the general shape and structure of Atiyah's classic book but as with previous editions, the text has been completely revised and updated to place the law of contract in a modern context. Combining coverage of the law with an account of perspectives on contract law, Smith addresses European influences on the subject and takes all key changes and developments in the law and current literature into account. The aims of the book, however, remain unchanged: to supply a basic introduction, not merely to the law of Contract, but also to theories, policies and ideas underlying the subject. This remains a stimulating and innovative introduction for all students coming to Contract Law for the first time.
