Review from previous edition This text is a thorough undertaking which manages to be both accessible and easy to read, yet comprehensive and scholarly in its approach...the author manages to bring to life what is traditionally perceived as a rather dry subject by showing its direct relevance to modern commercial realities. Severine Saintier, Legal Studies This new work, written by a leading Cambridge academic, is in my view now the best one stop introduction to agency available for practitioners and law students alike... The quality of the work is impressive and this essential work should form part of all academic law libraries and the law libraries of any firm of solicitors or set of chambers operating in the commercial field. Bankim Thanki QC, Fountain Court Chambers ...whether you are student, academic or busy lawyer, this is a short book from which you will find it difficult not to benefit Andrew Tettenborn, University of Exeter To tackle this reasonably 'new' area of the law of agency in a general book on the topic further helps to highlight the relevance of agency as a modern commercial marketing tool for businesses. Overall this contribution represents a very useful addition to the scholarship in this area and will assist many readers to further their understanding of this fascinating area Severine Saintier, Legal Studies
