Law of Obligations

Geoffrey Samuel,

Law of Obligations
 

About the eBook

This comprehensive book presents the English law of contract and tort in the context of a European law of obligations. "Law of Obligations" gives an overview of contract and tort as well as an introduction to the law of obligations in the civil (or continental) law tradition. The book is considered an extensive introduction to the western law of obligations, but with an emphasis on English law. Arising out of the analysis of the two legal traditions, Geoffrey Samuel raises questions about the appropriateness of importing the obligations category into the common law. He also highlights what has been termed the 'harmonisation debate'; ought the law of obligations to be harmonised at a European - or even international, level? The debate raises some fundamental issues not just about legal traditions and about the law of obligations itself, but also about comparative law theory and methodology. Designed with English law students and jurists in mind, this book will be an invaluable tool for researching contract, tort and the law of obligations. The book is an original contribution not only to European private law but equally to comparative legal studies.
