Contracts seal the fate of international transactions. Whether they stand on
firm legal ground may hinge upon a minute detail. The Contracts subset
of the International Encyclopaedia of Laws sheds light on "the fine print" in
the world of contracts, helping ensure the viability (or probe the
non-viability) of these detail-oriented instruments.
Contracts encompass the national monographs of a wide variety of countries,
written by experts from those countries. Each national monograph is divided
into two parts: the first addresses the general principles at issue, and the
second covers the specific types of contracts. The work also addresses
international aspects of contract law. The succinct yet scholarly quality of
this resource and the practicality of the information provided make it a
valuable time-saving tool for business and legal professionals. The updated
supplements ensure a library that its resources will remain current on changes
to legislation and policy in jurisdictions worldwide. For each jurisdiction
the work provides: List of Abbreviations. Preface. General Introduction.
