Commercial Law comprehensively meets the needs of undergraduates studying the law relating to agency, the sale of goods and consumer credit and the detailed, critical nature of the book means that it will also be invaluable for postgraduate courses. It will be equally indispensible for practitioners seeking a detailed work of reference. Commercial Law balances a readable exposition of principle with an explanation of the policy underpinning the rules of commercial law. The law is traced from its beginnings to the present day and so the reader gains a satisfying contextual overview of the development of the rules and their changing form and function. Moreover, the law is subjected to thorough analysis, evaluation and criticism, and there is much reference to material from other jurisdictions, thereby giving the reader an informed coherent view of the law.
