Atiyah's Introduction to the Law of Contract is a well-known text through which thousands of university students have first encountered the law of contract, and the new edition has long been eagerly awaited by university teachers and students. This sixth edition, updated by Stephen Smith, continues to provide readers with an introduction to the theories, policies, and ideas that underlie the law, placing an equal emphasis on the law and critical analysis. In particular, the discussion of recent cases and legislation is centred on why contract law is the way it is, whether it can be justified, and, if not, what should be done to improve it. The sixth edition has been revised to place the law of contract in a modern context and to account for recent developments in the law, as well as those in academic thinking and writing. Addressing European influences and including perspectives from comparative law, this remains a stimulating and authoritative exposition of the modern law of contract.

This is the new sixth edition of Atiyah's Introduction to the Law of Contract that offers a clear and comprehensive account of this area of law. This latest edition, by Stephen Smith, retains the general shape and structure of Atiyah's classic book but as with previous editions, the texthas been completely revised and updated to place the law of contract in a modern context. Combining coverage of the law with an account of perspectives on contract law, Smith addresses European influences on the subject and takes all key changes and developments in the law and current literatureinto account. The aims of the book, however, remain unchanged: to supply a basic introduction, not merely to the law of Contract, but also to theories, policies and ideas underlying the subject. This remains a stimulating and innovative introduction for all students coming to Contract Law forthe first time.

"Once more, we were delighted to take on the task of updating this text for its 14th edition, having taken over editorial responsibilities from the late John Adams from the 13th edition. In our preface to the previous edition, we recorded the sudden passing of Professor Adams. Sadly, in this preface, we must note another passing: on 30 March 2018, Patrick Atiyah, who wrote the 1st-8th editions of this book and continues to give the book its name, passed away at the age of 87. Patrick was one of those giants of academic contract law whose contributions continue to be read and to inspire scholars everywhere. We are both mindful of our task to maintain the scholarly rigour which he gave to this book as we take it into the future. This edition is also the first time since the 9th edition without a Scottish editor. Professor Hector MacQueen had been responsible for adding Scottish content since the 10th edition (2001), but decided that he would discontinue this role after the 13th editio n was published in 2016. We are very grateful for Hector's contributions to the work. On the advice of the book's publishers, this edition has been put together without the benefit of a Scottish editor, although we have, of course, continued to take decisions from the Scottish courts into account in updating the various chapters. Since the last edition was published, there have been few major developments in the law on the sale of goods, aside from the difficult ruling by the Supreme Court in PST Energy 7 Shipping LLC v OW Bunker Malta Ltd [2016] UKSC 23 (which arrived too late for proper consideration in the previous edition). We have updated the text in light of recent cases and academic writings where appropriate. Furthermore, we have continued our task of streamlining the running order of the chapters, and we have sought to make gentle updates to the language of the book, preserving its rigour but ensuring it remains accessible to a contemporary audience. In some instances, we have ^curtailed or removed altogether the detailed discussion of the pre-1994 case-law which had become redundant as a result of the changes made to the Sale of Goods Act at that time. The rise of digital technology and new business models in the digital economy will invariably have an impact on the law concerning the sale of goods, but at this point, the real impact is not yet known. In some places, we have alluded to the possible significance of digital technology, and this could well become a more significant theme in future editions"--

In the past few decades, scholars have offered positive, normative, and most recently, interpretive theories of contract law. This title confronts the leading interpretive theories of contract and demonstrates their interpretive doctrinal failures.
