From its first publication, this book was acclaimed as the standard text on this field of the law. Now for its fourth edition, it has been completely revised and expanded to take into account the new developments of the last five years. The book lays out both the framework of commercial law and the application of fundamental principles to typical business transactions. This unique combination of theory and practice is supplemented by specimen documents, tables of statutes, cases and conventions.
