The Principles of The Law of Contract
Author(s): Alastair James Kerr
The Principles of the Law of Contract, first published in 1967, has seen five editions, several reprints and is now in its sixth edition. This new edition includes extensive discussion on termination of contracts, breach of contract, and remedies for such breach, as well as discussion on damages, together with the linked subject of causation. This revised and updated work also takes decisions passed up to the end of February 2002 into account during discussion.
Gives cross-references to other volumes in the series, namely The Law of Agency and The Law of Sale and Lease, where necessary. The Principles of the Law of Contract is one of the standard works on contract in South African law. Includes Table of Cases, Table of Statutes and Index.
Further deliberation on continuing confusion in the language used concerning long-standing problems such as disagreement and implied provisions. Amplified treatment of counter-offers, common mistake, repudiation, and performance, or tender of performance, and reciprocal obligations.
