Contracts seal the fate of international transactions. Whether they stand on firm legal ground may hinge upon a minor detail. The Contracts subset of the International Encyclopaedia of Laws sheds light on 'the fine print' in the world of contracts, helping assure the viability (or probe the non-viability) of these detail-orientated 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 contract. 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 timesaving tool for business and legal professionals. The updated supplements assure a library that will remain current on changes to legislation and policy in jurisdictions worldwide.
