A Restatement of the English Law of Contract is the second Restatement of English law undertaken by Andrew Burrows following on the success of A Restatement of the English Law of Unjust Enrichment (OUP, 2012). Designed to enhance the accessibility of the common law the Restatement comprises a number of clear succinct rules, fully explained by a supporting commentary, which set out the general law of contract in England and Wales. Written by one of the leading authorities in this area, in collaboration with an advisory group of senior judges, academics, and legal practitioners, the Restatement offers a novel and powerfully persuasive statement of the law in this central area of English law. All lawyers dealing with the English law of contract, whether as practitioners, judges, academics, or law students, cannot but benefit from this Restatement. The English law of contract is one of the most respected systems of contract law in the world and by the device of a 'choice of law' clause is often chosen by foreign commercial parties as the applicable law to govern their contract. One of the aims of the Restatement is for the reader, including those from civil law jurisdictions, to see quickly and easily how the different elements of the English law of contract fit together.
Real Estate Due Diligence is the first textbook on due diligence, the cornerstone of every successful real estate deal. Due diligence is designed to uncover potential risks posed by a real estate acquisition, financing, or development project and failure to carry it out successfully can result in costly oversights and diminished investment returns. This book demonstrates how to assess and manage legal risks on properties such as office buildings, shopping centres, industrial buildings, apartments, and hotels-before the transaction closes. Real estate students and practitioners are taken through all of the essential due diligence areas, including:
Throughout the book, major laws and court cases are used to illustrate due diligence issues and provide rich opportunities for classroom study and discussion. Practice points and comprehensive due diligence checklists help readers to go on to put their learning in practice. This book fills a gap in the real estate literature and is perfect for use as a college textbook, a practitioner's guide, or for industry training.

Good Newes from New England, first published in 1624, was written by one of the first Pilgrim leaders to enter the United States. Edward Winslow, an English immigrant and plantation leader from the Mayflower, wrote in a journal his account of the new world, which was subsequently published in order to convince more pilgrims to make the long voyage to America. The entries, which are separated into months, discuss a wide range of topics, from food and weather to the Native Americans and their reception and treatment of the pilgrims. Winslow's account is a remarkable primary source for those interested in America's early foundations. Edward Winslow (1595-1655) was an English immigrant on the Mayflower, a leader and founder of the Plymouth colony, and governor of Plymouth in 1633, 1636, and 1644. Winslow also founded Marshfield in Plymouth where he owned an estate called Careswell and lived until his death. Winslow's account of the "first Thanksgiving" in Mourt's Relation is one of only two first-hand written testimonies in existence.
