New edition of Woolman on Contract
This month sees the publication of the 4th edition of Woolman on Contract by the Edinburgh Centre for Commercial Law's Dr Gillian Black. The author has carried on the tradition of this work, explaining in the preface, "I have sought to maintain its character as a concise introductory work, by focussing on material developments and avoiding change for change's sake." Dr Black has taken the opportunity to tackle some of the issues in contract law which remain problematic, such as the ongoing saga of interpretation (including discussion of Luminar Lava Ignite Ltd v Mama Group plc  CSIH 1) and the remedy of retention (Inveresk v Tullis Russell Papermakers Ltd  UKSC 19). It's great to see the return of this useful book.
