A brilliant Regency romance full of spirited heroines and dashing heroes, by the queen of the genre. Adam Deveril, the new Viscount Lynton and a hero at Salamanca, returns from the Peninsula War to find his family on the brink of ruin and the broad acres of his ancestral home mortgaged to the hilt. It is Lord Oversley, father of Adam's first love, who tactfully introduces him to Mr Jonathan Chaleigh, a City man of apparently unlimited wealth with no social ambitions for himself, but with his eyes firmly fixed on a suitable match for his one and only daughter. For more than fifty years Georgette Heyer brought romance and adventure to a wordwide readership and Civil Contarct shows how she continues to be loved today.
The nineteen outstanding contributors to this deeply insightful book concur in envisioning a fundamentally new systematic concept of contract law that, while preserving the essential andarchitectureand of the existing European codes, would nonetheless find cogent ways to integrate such modern developments as mass transactions, chains and networks of contracts, regulation of markets and contracts to protect consumers, and service and long-term contracts into an optional European code. The book is organised along three major avenues: and the systematic arrangement of a contract law code - how it deals with core questions of formation and performance or breach of contract, such as mistake and misrepresentation, standard contract terms, and remedies in the case of breach of contract; and the apparent necessity to merge consumer contract law (i.e. such issues as product safety and liability, warranties, and consumer debt and insolvency) with traditional core contract law concepts; and and the importance to substantive contract law of the pre-contractual phase, in which information duties are becoming steadily more paramount. The authors perspectives cover a wide range of jurisdictions, including new EU Member States. The bookands commitment to an integration of comparative law, EC law, and the debate on European codification offers practitioners and academics fertile ground for the development of a new model of contract law that is more than a common denominator of what has been in force so far. This model may serve as a basis for Europe-wide and perhaps even worldwide discussion.

This book provides a comprehensive commentary and guidance to readers on the current edition (1999 Edition) of General Conditions of Contract for Civil Engineering Works (the "General Conditions"), which the Hong Kong Government uses for all its civil engineering contracts. The book describes 46 out of 90 clauses in the General Conditions and their practical application, with explanations in plain and simple language under such headings as Commentary, Analysis and Application. The listing of equivalent clauses of the more user-friendly English ICE Conditions and the international FIDIC Conditions together enables the readers to understand the meaning of the General Conditions from a different context. For those readers who find it easier to read in Chinese, the translation will help them to compare with and understand the original English text. The book is therefore useful to students, consulting engineers, surveyors and lawyers who want to understand more about the Hong Kong construction practice.
