The Law of Contract in South Africa 3e provides a comprehensive, rigorous and accessible introduction to the principles of contract law.
The texts concise explanation assists readers to clearly understand the nuances of the subject matter, while developing applied, critical and reflective thought.
McKenzie's law of building and engineering contracts and arbitration is an essential reference for those connected with the construction industry. It is the leading reference work dealing with South African contract law relating specifically to engineering and building contracts.
This is the first book to explain the law applicable to the updated Joint Building Contracts Committee (JBCC) Principle Building Agreement (6th edition, 2014) and the Engineering General Conditions of Contract for Construction Works (2nd edition, 2010), which are both annexed to the book and extensively cross-referenced to assist the reader. The book also cross-references the relevant clauses of the FIDIC Contract Agreement (1999). Disputes arising out of building contracts are often referred to arbitration for solution.
This work therefore deals with the effect of the Arbitration Act 42 of 1965 and the Association of Arbitrators Standard Procedure Rules, which are also reproduced as annexures in the book.
A book that requires no introduction, Caney’s The Law of Suretyship has, for over 70 years, been an authoritative reference work for the law of suretyship in South Africa. The 6th edition incorporates significant developments since the last edition in 2002, a period in which South African courts have been very busy in this area of the law.
This latest edition once again ensures that the treatment of its subject matter is most comprehensive, whilst remaining accessible to non-specialists.
The Law of Suretyship contains three parts, each dealing with different stages in the life of a contract of surety, namely: the nature, formation and operation of the contract; the rights of the surety; and the release of the surety. Each part contains a detailed discussion of their respective topic.
The authors’ treatment of each topic is well researched and supported by a host of authority, and the main text is enhanced by additional information and further discussions in the footnotes.
A proper understanding of the law of contract requires far more than the mere rote learning of principles extracted from cases. Contract law is a practical subject and students will understand it best by applying contractual principles to practical, life-like scenarios. Student's guide to the law of contract fosters such an approach. It is filled with examples, exercises and problem-setting questions that increase gradually in level of complexity. This will facilitate discussion in study groups and during lectures. Spaces for the completion of exercises and summaries of prescribed cases enable students to engage actively with the learning material in one basic source. Student's guide to the law of contract can be used by lecturers as a primary teaching tool for undergraduate students to improve their students' knowledge and understanding of basic contractual principles, develop their ability to reason and stimulate their interest in the subject. Likewise, students will find it useful as an aid additional to lectures and more advanced contract law textbooks.
Kontraktereg Algemene Beginsels volg 'n analitiese benadering tot die begrippe, beginsels en reels wat op kontrakte betrekking het, en plaas terselfdertyd kontrakte en die kontraktereg in 'n breer regswetenskaplike, grondwetlike en sosiale konteks. Die krag van Kontraktereg Algemene Beginsels le in die skrywers se omvattende gesamentlike kennis van die gemeenregtelike beginsels en die filosofiese onderbou van die kontraktereg, sowel as die invloed van die Grondwet as die bron van afdwingbare sosiale waardes en openbare belang. Die resultaat is 'n werk wat 'n grondige uiteensetting en ontleding van die teoretiese grondslag en struktuur van die Suid-Afrikaanse kontraktereg kombineer met 'n bespreking van die howe se toepassing van die beginsels. Waar die reg nog nie bepaal is nie, word uiteenlopende menings beoordeel en oplossings voorgestel, soms ook met verwysing na buitelandse jurisdiksies. Die werk besin ook oor die koers wat ingeslaan behoort te word om die kontraktereg in ooreenstemming met grondwetlike norme te ontwikkel. Voorstelle word gemaak oor die rol van goeie trou in die sluiting en uitvoering van kontrakte, synde een van die moontlike grondslae vir die ontwikkeling van die gemenereg. Hierdie vyfde uitgawe van Kontraktereg Algemene Beginsels neem kennis van die jongste ontwikkelings in die kontraktereg, veral met betrekking tot die uitwerking van grondwetlike jurisprudensie, goeie trou en nuwe wetgewing oor kontrakte, in die besonder die Wet op Verbruikersbeskerming. Die skrywers bespreek die jongste hofbeslissings om die betrokke regsbeginsels en wetlike bepalings te verduidelik.

This comprehensive book presents the English law of contract and tort in the context of a European law of obligations. Law of Obligations provides the reader with an overview of contract and tort as well as an introduction to the law of obligations in the civil (or continental) law tradition. The book is considered an extensive introduction to the western law of obligations, but with an emphasis on English law. Arising out of the analysis of the two legal traditions, Geoffrey Samuel raises questions about the appropriateness of importing the obligations category into the common law. He also highlights what has been termed the `harmonisation debate'; should the law of obligations be harmonised at a European - or even international level? The debate raises some fundamental issues not just about legal traditions and about the law of obligations itself, but also about comparative law theory and methodology. Designed with English law students and jurists in mind, this book will be an invaluable tool for researching contract, tort and the law of obligations. It is an original contribution not only to European private law but equally to comparative legal studies.

Problems regarding the nature of consent are at the heart of many of today's most pressing issues. For example, the #MeToo movement has underscored the need to move beyond viewing consent as a simple matter of yes or no. Consent is complex because humans and their relationships are complicated. Humans, as a result of cognitive limitations and emotional and physical vulnerabilities, are susceptible to manipulation and mistakes. Given the potential for regret, are there some things to which one should not be permitted to consent? The consentability quandary becomes more urgent with technological advances. Should we allow body hacking? Cryogenics? Consumer travel to Mars? Assisted suicide? In Consentability: Consent and Its Limits, Nancy S. Kim proposes a bold, original framework for evaluating consentability, which considers the complexities surrounding consent.
