    THIS IS THE PREMIER AUTHORITY FOR 21st CENTURY CONTRACT LAW: without question, this is the premier book from the complete Thomson Sweet and Maxwell Common Law library of practitioner publications. Easily described as the undisputed heavyweight in all senses, it has comprehensive coverage, scope and detail in contract and agency law. This edition has been extensively updated and incorporates new legislation and many recent cases. It is also a great book for students who wish to gain a `First¿, and for academics and commentators conducting research. TWO VOLUMES: In two volumes, ¿Chitty on Contracts¿ continues to provide a complete coverage of the law of contract, incorporating detailed reference to relevant legislation and cases. Volume 1 deals with General Principles applicable to every kind of contract and Volume 2 covers Specific Contracts such as Sale of Goods, Construction and Credit & Security. KEY BENEFITS ARE: ¿ An extensive updating of contract law itself incorporating new developments such as the Contracts 'Rights of Third Parties' Act 1999, the Enterprise Act 2002, and the Sale and Supply of Goods to Consumers Regulations 2002 ¿ Newly revised chapters cover Crown, Public Authorities and the European Union restitution and restrictive agreements and covenants The New Law Journal described Chitty as `overwhelming in its scholarship¿, and `humbling in its ambit¿ ¿ choice phrases which reflect the expertise of this eminent team of contract lawyers who will be familiar to both students and practitioners alike as household names for our profession. Many practitioners welcome the use of a range of experts to observe developments in this area of substantive law. THE BARRISTERS' FAVOURITE. Chitty still remains the practitioners¿ favourite as few chapters have remained unchanged with the new edition. For the busy civil advocate, it is an invaluable source for all academic and judicial references. The work remains of the highest calibre as contract law enters the twenty-first century. We have much to thank Joseph Chitty for his perseverance in 1826 when the first edition saw the light of day as a modest start to the bedrock of common law. There is really nothing that can compare with this learned work - it maintains the highest of standards in the most fundamental area of common law. Phillip Taylor MBE Barrister-at-Law. Abbey & Richmond Chambers.
