The last edition of this book saw a major restructuring of the whole work, and an attempt to introduce a number of new themes. In particular, it stressed the resurgence of freedom of contract ideology, and introduced some basic economic issues in contract law. This edition retains the general shape and structure of the previous edition although the old and outdated examples are now completely modern and up-to-date. Avoiding excessive and confusing detail, Professor Atiyah supplies a basic introduction to the law of contact, as well as to the theories, policies and ideas underlying the subject. In addition, the author has constantly resorted to a modern historical approach, giving the student some sense of how the law has developed over the past 100 years. Widely recognized as one of the most interesting and innovative books on contract to have been published in the last 25 years, this highly readable text remains popular with both teachers and students.
