The 6th edition of this authoritative reference work incorporates significant developments since the last edition in 2002. 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. 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.
