Description

Contracts: Law, Theory, and Practice has two principal ambitions: first, to present the basic doctrine of contracts in a comprehensive and coherent fashion; and second, to encourage a rigorous and interdisciplinary approach to thinking about the values and principles that inspire the law. The book provides a systematic survey of contract law while weaving in perspectives from economics, philosophy, sociology, and legal theory, to show how these disciplines can be used to both illuminate and criticize the law as it stands. The book’s treatments of “law and” ideas are designed to be free-standing, making the book an excellent introduction to interdisciplinary legal thought for students without prior training in other fields.
