Equitable Law of Contracts: Standards and Principles

This remarkable study places the modern development of equitable contract principles on a firm theoretical foundation. The text shows that the idea of the just and equitable contract has never been entirely absent from contract law, and that its persistence in various guises, albeit often in a covert manner, has in fact been the essential element in judicial enforcement of contracts since Roman times.

In support of his thesis Professor DiMatteo plumbs the deepest currents of common law and civil law practice in every age, showing how the principles of justice formulated by Aristotle, Augustine, Aquinas, Kant, Hegel, Weber, and other influential thinkers have become manifest in such underlying equitable contract principles as "just price," unconscionability, and reasonableness.

A classroom adoption price is available.
