This is the first Singapore contract law textbook prepared specifically for a local audience. It provides a thorough and organised examination of all aspects of Singapore contract law. Wherever possible, the book draws on important rulings from other Commonwealth jurisdictions (particularly with regard to areas of Singapore contract law that are not well-settled or which may benefit from comparative contract jurisprudence). In addition, if applicable and essential, the book includes references to important secondary material as well as reform ideas.

This book will be beneficial not just to local practitioners and students, but also to practitioners and students from other common law jurisdictions, due to its comprehensive discussion of Singapore contract law and references to a wide range of comparative material.
