Studies in the Contract Laws of Asia provides an authoritative account of the contract law regimes of selected Asian jurisdictions, including the major centres of commerce where until now, limited critical commentaries have been available in the English language. In this new six part series of scholarly essays from leading scholars and commentators, each volume will offer an insider's perspective into specific areas of contract law, including: remedies, formation, parties, contents, vitiating factors, change of circumstances, illegality, and public policy, and will explore how these diverse jurisdictions address common problems encountered in contractual disputes. Concluding each volume will be a closing discussion of the convergences and divergences across the jurisdictions. Volume I of this series examines the remedies for breach of contract in the laws of China, India, Japan, Korea, Taiwan, Singapore, Malaysia, Hong Kong, Korea, and Thailand. Specifically, it addresses the readiness of each legal system in their action to insist that parties perform their obligations; the methods of enforcing the parties' agreed remedies for breach; and the ways in which monetary compensation are awarded. Each jurisdiction is discussed over two chapters; the first chapter will examine the performance remedies and agreed remedies, while the second explores the monetary remedies. A concluding chapter offers a comparative overview.

This is an ambitious project, covering both common and civil law jurisdictions,... to facilitate conversations both between Asian jurisdictions and Asian and European jurisdictions, and to promote the development and teaching of courses on comparative Asian contract law in law schools worldwide. [The collection is] a fascinating read for contract lawyers interested in the evolution of contract law or wishing to gain insights into the application of contractual remedies across the world For comparative lawyers interested in legal transplants, there is also much to consider. I very much look forward to the appearance of the next five volumes in this series and the editors are to be commended in providing a valuable addition to comparative law scholarship. * Paula Giliker, International & Comparative Law Quarterly *
