about

This key text on consumer law contains materials drawn from a broad range of sources and includes extracts from: cases and statutes; Government and Law Commission reports; and publications produced by the Office of Fair Trading and the National Consumer Council. It also incorporates materialsillustrating the approach of other jurisdictions, most notably within the Commonwealth, north America and continental Europe. The ever-increasing influence of the European Community is apparent throughout this work and the extracts (many of which are not readily accessible elsewhere) areintroduced, linked and contextualised by extensive commentary, notes, problems and questions for discussion. The book takes full account of the major statutory changes since the last edition, for example, the Consumer Protection Act 1987, the Sale and Supply of Goods Act 1994, the Package Travel, Package Holidays and Package Tours Regulations 1992, the Unfair Terms in Consumer Contracts Regualtions 1994and the General Product Safety Regulations 1994. In addition, there is discussion of developments affecting the enforcement of penalties, including conditional fee agreements and group actions, together with coverage of the substantial amount of recent case law. Miller, Harvey and Parry offer wide-ranging and authoritative coverage of an increasingly complex area of law. It will be an invaluable source of learning for all students of consumer law, particularly undergraduates and those on Legal Practice courses. It will also interest specialist andnon-specialist practitioners, and non-lawyers who deal with consumer law such as trading standards officers and those proffering advice from citizens advice bureaux.
