This masterly work from an author of great repute successfully caters at the highest level to the need for an authoritative reference work with comparative material. The Judiciary, Law Faculties of Indian Universities, Commercial Enterprises, Foreign Organisations and Senior Advocates who require a detailed, thorough and precise analysis of the provisions of the Indian Contract Act and its comparison with foreign Law will find this work invaluable and indispensable. The discussion on Indian Judicial precedents and foreign decisions is so copious that the reader will have all the material he desires.
The plan of the book is in four parts. The first three parts are devoted to "Introduction to the Law of Contract", "Development of the General Principles of Contract" and "Conflict of Laws as to Contract". These three parts concisely and vividly portray the principles of law as to contracts in a narrative form. Part IV deals with the Indian Contract Act sectionwise. The subject of conflict of laws vis-à-vis contract has also been dealt with. The work also deals with Regulations for Tenders and Military Contracts with Standard Forms of Contract for the guidance of Engineers and Contractors.
