Sir Kim Lewison, Lord Justice of Appeal, England and Wales, Cambridge Law Journal this book is a refreshing overview of the current state of English contract law, frequently enlivened by Professor Andrews' vivid turn of phrase... it is a valuable addition to the literature.
Lord Leggatt, Foreword The distinctive - indeed to me knowledge unique - feature of this book is that it adopts a different and fresh approach which gives full recognition to the nature and texture of the common law. While the author looks for principles that underpin the case law, he does so at a high level - finding six major organising principles. In discussing topics, he highlights and analyses significant cases, with particular emphasis on cases recently decided. His footnotes refer
the reader to the latest academic commentary on controversial points. And in forty-nine places where he finds the law uncertain or in an unsatisfactory state, he provides a critical evaluation of the topic.
Lord Leggatt, Foreword The reader or user of this book is given an authentic sense of the English common law of contract as a work in progress. The author shows us which topics lie at the law's cutting-edge, how the case law on any particular topic has developed or is developing and how it might or should continue to develop. Readers are also reliably directed to the main up-to-date material which will enable them to engage in the process of interpretation or re-interpretation of the
relevant case law themselves.
