Any false representation made by one person to another, with the object and result of inducing him to enter into a contract or transaction with the representor, or otherwise to alter his position to his prejudice, may be the subject of a claim for damages at the instance of the latter person. The fourth edition of this legal classic takes into account the considerable judicial and legislative activity both in the UK and overseas, since the last edition was published in 1974, and provides thorough analysis of this area as well as supplying conclusive material to back claims. This new edition: * Covers fraudulent, innocent and negligent misrepresentations and misrepresentations made actionable by statute * Sets out in full the law and practice of bringing an action for misrepresentation * Also deals with the remedies and defences available * Provides substantial coverage of key decisions and legislative activity in both the UK and Commonwealth jurisdictions * In-depth treatment of the Hedley Byrne principles and cases including Smith New Court Securities
