Sixth Edition. New to the sixth edition is a section on “disgorgement damages”, which, while not yet awarded in Australia, have been awarded in the United States and have been raised as a possible remedy for appropriate breaches of contract in the United Kingdom.
As with previous editions, this edition continues to be an overview of the relevant principles and of how they have applied (and continue to apply), in practice. For that reason, considerable emphasis continues to be placed on readily understandable explanations supported by short summaries of the cases (seminal, pivotal or just quirky), that established, clarified or illustrate the principles that form what we know as the law of contract. An Introduction to the Law of Contract remains the ideal contract text for students of business, accounting and commerce. pp. xlvi, 524
