It concentrates on the points at which parties in the contractual sequence are most likly to suffer redress and are particularly exposed to liability in respect of defective products, and ways in which such liabilities can be more equitably distributed. Although mainly concerned with obligations in contract, the book also covers major common law principles. It deals with contractual relationships, such as the sale of goods, contracts for work and materials, collateral contracts involving the supply of materials and contracts for the supply of services, liability in tort, both as regards common law liability in negligence and statutory liability for defective premises and products, other important areas such as the role of exclusion clauses and the product liability implications of incomplete or unconsummated contracts. Extensive coverage has also been given to EC legislation including the Construction Products Directive.
