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.
