This is a systematic study of the law of sale of goods with reference to UK and Commonwealth authorities and relevant UK and EU legislation. A distinguishing feature of the work is the depth of treatment of problem areas. In addition the insightful commentary provides possible lines of argument on traditionally difficult topics. With particular clarity of expression the work covers in full content, interpretation and performance issues relating to sale of goods agreements. Aspects of consumer law are dealt with where relevant as are issues such as recoverability of damages, currency and interest. The new edition is fully updated and expanded to incorporate significant new case law relating to damages and the Sale of Goods Act 1979 and the transposition of the European Directive on Guarantees in Consumer Sales. New material includes discussion of exemption clauses, penalty clauses and documentary letters of credit, and full account is taken of the Sale and Supply of Goods to Consumer Regulations 2002 and the Consumer Protection from Unfair Trading Regualtions 2008. New appendices contain a selection of valuable reference materials, including The Sale of Goods Act 1979.
