5.0 out of 5 stars Beyond the Law, 24 May 2007
This review is from: Understanding Contract Law (Paperback)
The study of the Law of Contracts is often viewed as a study of rules, rules which answer questions such as: what is a contract? How is a contract formed? What are the terms of the contract? When is a contract breached?

The inevitable problems arise when one touches on a topic where there is no clear rule, or where there are seemingly conflicting rules, such as the question when an innocent party can withdraw from a contract where the other party has breached the contract. Some questions have no clear answers, and one thus concludes that, somehow, the law is 'wrong'. Yet the law is not 'wrong', often the conflicting rules have their own merits and flaws, it is thus often a question of conflicting ideologies.

'Understanding Contract Law' explores the Law of Contract through the lens of different ideologies, it does not just state what the rule is, but why and how the rule came about. In an area of conflict 'Understanding Contract Law' will explore the problem, unveil the ideological undercurrents of the problem and how the different ideologies have proposed different solutions.

'Understanding Contract Law' is an invaluable book for anyone who wants to understand not just what the law is, but also how it came about, how it has evolved and how it will continue to evolve. Written clearly and succinctly, 'understanding contract law' it is an ideal companion to the traditional, formal, 'rulebook'-reading.
