Contract Law: A Comparative Introduction
  • Jan M Smits, Maastricht University
This innovative and accessible textbook offers a straightforward and clear introduction to the law of contract suitable for use across geographical boundaries. Unlike most other texts – which tend either to introduce students to the national contract law of their own country, or else to offer global and comparative perspectives to advanced students already familiar with the basics – this book offers a unique introduction to contract law by means of a comparative approach. It treats contract law as a discipline that can be studied on the basis of common principles and methods without being tied to a particular jurisdiction or legal culture. Pitched for international students and courses with a global outlook, Contract Law: A Comparative Introduction also puts contract law in context by discussing empirical and economic insights.
