Combining extracts from cases and other materials with substantial commentary and explanatory text, Sealy and Hooley provide contextfor the extracts, question their significance, and provide an authoritative guide to commercial law.This book follows a very clear structure, discussing topics covered on commercial law courses not as separate entities, but as part of a coherent whole, enabling students to easily make links between different areas of the law. Fundamental concepts such as ownership, possession, and good faith runthrough the book, offering common themes connecting each area. The authors supply extensive commentary on key decisions, helping students to focus on the most important areas; also provided are European and American examples, ensuring that students have access to a comparative analysis of commerciallaw as it operates throughout the world.Praised for the clarity of writing and mapping well onto a variety of courses, the emphasis throughout this book is on practical application - how is the law used in practice? Diagrams and questions enable students to check progress and consolidate understanding. Whilst maintaining the previousedition's successful structure and style, this edition takes into account all of the major changes in the law since 2003 and provides extracts from recent key cases.Sealy and Hooley's Commercial Law brings together the best features of a textbook and casebook, making it an invaluable one-stop resource.
