The 4th edition of Hudson Building and Engineering Contracts was published by Sweet & Maxwell in 1914 and was the last edition to contain a volume of case reports. This edition has now become the sole source of reports of many cases dating from the late 19th and early 20th century. Whilst the cases are still of great relevance in modern construction law, it was increasingly difficult to get hold of this volume. There has therefore been a strong demand to reprint the cases in Volume II of the 4th edition, in order to rectify this significant research gap.
