Consequential Damages in Comparative Context
- from breach of promise to monetary remedy in the American, Scandinavian and international law of contracts and salesaf Lookofsky J
This comparative study deals with the American, Scandinavian and international (C.I.S.G.) solutions to a theoretically controversial and practically important legal problem: liability for the far-reaching ""indirect"" consequences of contractual breach. The consequential issue is analyzed within larger commercial context: the scope and degree of contractual commitment, damages grounded in fault and no-fault, disclaimers of liability, etc. The method of presentation is that of a concrete case study, inspired by actual decisions of Common and Scandinavian Courts of Law. This book should be of interest to practicing lawyers and lecturers and postgraduate students of law. Doktordisputats.
