Promises, Morals and Law

Industry Reviews

"One of today's most accomplished students of the common law examines the nature of promises and the grounds of their binding force....The book deserves attention not only because it offers a radical reinterpretation of promising. It also raises wider and more important questions. Most obviously it makes the reader rethink his attitude towards the possible cross-fertilization of legal study and philosophy. But beyond that it raises the often neglected problem of the relation between the law and social institutions independent of it."--Joseph Raz, Harvard Law Review

"Anyone interested in the moral significance of promising will benefit from Atiyah's sophisticated renewal of the attack on the utilitarian account of promises and a critical evaluation of his own theory."--Michigan Law Review
