Rethinking the Law of Contract Damages

Rethinking Law series

Victor P. Goldberg, Jerome L. Greene Professor Emeritus of Transactional Law, Columbia University, US

In this series of chapters on contract damages issues, Victor P. Goldberg provides a framework for analyzing the problems that arise when determining damages, and applies it to case law in both the USA and the UK.

‘Professor Goldberg’s book provides a wealth of new insights into the English cases on contract damages, through impressively detailed research that includes the unearthing of new materials. Goldberg notes from the outset that he comes to English law “as an outsider” and the lens through which he evaluates the cases rests on a premise that many English contract scholars are unlikely to accept. And yet, as a spur to “rethinking” contract damages, this approach makes a provocative and valuable contribution, and I learned a lot from reading the book.’
– Andrew Summers, London School of Economics, UK
