This collection of essays brings together the work of many of the world's leading contract law scholars. It focuses upon a common central theme - the question of good faith and fair dealing in the law of contract. The book is divided into several parts: the first part is an introduction; part two examines the requirement of good faith and its role in the formation of contracts; part three is concerned with contractual obligations; and part four examines breach of contract and remedial issues. The work should be of interest to scholars of private law in both common and civil law.

Industry Reviews

``an important and invaluable source of material for both practitioners and academics interested in this area of the law...an international value in that it discusses and analyses not only English law but also the law in some continental countries as well as the United States.'' ICCLR `'high-quality...the Beatson and Friedmann collection contains several powerful and innovative theoretical contributions which are primarily aimed at, and will be of justifiable interest to, researchers for years to come...As the many valuable comparative law contributions to the Beatson and Friedmann collection make clear, English law has, in any event, a wide variety of alternative good faith models from whcih to choose.''
