useful to students, and, perhaps, convenient to those who are engaged in the
teaching of law. Author tried to show how a contract is made, what is needed to
make it binding, what its effect is, how its terms are interpreted, and how it
is discharged and comes to an end.

comprehensive selection of authoritative material for the study and discussion
of the principles of the law of contract. The work is now designed primarily to
be used alone as the basis of instruction, although it may also be used
conveniently with lectures or a standard treatise.

the following topics: introduction, offer and acceptance, intention to create
legal relations, terms of the contract, capacity to contract, privity of
contract, discharge of contract ,mistake, misrepresentation, duress, undue
influence and unconscionability, illegality and public policy, judicial remedies
