English summary: This volume deals with the contract law of the European legal systems. What are the essential rules of these systems on the formation and validity of contracts? What rules apply to a party's right to bring a claim for performance, to terminate the contract or to claim damages for breach? While the discussion is based on the national rules, they are taken into account only as local variations on a European theme. To what extent is it therefore possible to speak of a common European law of contract? What contributions do the "Principles of European Contract Law" and the proposal of the "Draft Common Frame of Reference" make? This book is not only aimed at helping to teach young Europeans lawyers, but also strives to assist those engaged in the reform of national contract law or the drafting of uniform European legislation. The first 1996 edition of the volume has now been updated and completed. German description: Unter "Europaischem Vertragsrecht" versteht dieses Buch die Regeln, die den Rechtsordnungen der europaischen Lander gemeinsam sind: Wie kommt ein gultiger Vertrag zustande? Nach welchen Regeln wird beurteilt, ob eine Vertragspartei die Erfullung des Vertrages verlangen, von dem Vertrag Abstand nehmen, ihn widerrufen oder kundigen oder den Kontrahenten auf Schadensersatz in Anspruch nehmen kann? Lassen sich auf dem Gebiet des Vertragsrechts gemeineuropaische Strukturen auffinden? Gibt es allgemein akzeptierte Regeln? Wie sind sie zu formulieren, wenn man die "Prinzipien des Europaischen Vertragsrechts" oder die Vorschlage des "Draft Common Frame of Reference" berucksichtigt? Dabei werden die Losungen der nationalen Rechtsordnungen ausfuhrlich - wenn auch stets nur als nationale Variationen eines europaischen Themas - behandelt. Das Buch kann deshalb bei der rechtsvergleichenden Ausbildung der jungen europaischen Juristen eine Rolle spielen, ferner auch dort, wo e s um die Vorbereitung europaischen Gesetzesrechts oder um die Reform der nationalen Vertragsrechte geht. Das Buch ist in einer ersten unvollstandigen Auflage schon 1996 erschienen. Die Neuauflage bringt den Text auf den neuen Stand und erganzt ihn um die damals noch fehlenden Abschnitte.

“Contract Law: A Commonwealth Caribbean Case Book” focusses on contract law, as articulated by the jurists of the Commonwealth Caribbean region. Case law from across the region has been combed to source the cases identified in this text. The jurisdictions from which the cases have emanated span the full breadth of the Commonwealth Caribbean region. The quality of the judgments referenced and the clarity of expression of the legal principles by our regional jurists should greatly assist the young law student in his journey through this interesting area of law. The Caribbean jurisprudence in the area of contract law operates within statutory and common law boundaries. The absence of statutory intervention in some situations and the presence of legislation in others, makes this area of law unique in its operation. While it is important for students to be able to conduct research, there is a need for Commonwealth Caribbean resource material. This book seeks to achieve this objective. The wide body of contractual principles have been categorised into identifiable elements of contract law so as to guide a student through this vast area of law. I hope to underscore the essential nature of contract law to not only the law student’s arsenal of legal expertise, but also to his eventual practice of law. It is hoped that this book can assist in developing a genuine interest and understanding of contract law.

Während die Informationspflichten in den gemeinschaftsrechtlichen Verbraucherschutzrichtlinien immer ausgeprägter geregelt wurden, beschränken sich die Vorgaben zu Sanktionen bei Informationspflichtverletzungen in den allermeisten Fällen auf eine allgemeine, generalklauselartige Vorschrift. Den Mitgliedstaaten wird auferlegt, für geeignete, wirksame und abschreckende Sanktionen zu sorgen. Die konkrete Ausgestaltung der Sanktionen wird in der Regel in das Ermessen der Mitgliedstaaten gestellt. An dieser Stelle setzt die Arbeit an. Die Informationspflichtenkataloge in sechs Verbraucherschutzrichtlinien werden zunächst auf funktionelle und wertungsmäßige Gemeinsamkeiten hin untersucht, um den Informationspflichten dann funktional adäquate Sanktionen zuzuweisen. Auf Basis der gemeinschaftsrechtlichen Vorgaben werden rechtsvergleichend die Sanktionsregime Deutschlands, Frankreichs und Großbritanniens mit ihren unterschiedlichen Traditionen und Ansätzen in der Verbraucherpolitik in den Blick genommen und an den gefundenen gemeinschaftsrechtlichen Vorgaben gemessen. Vor dem Hintergrund des Kommissionsvorschlags einer Richtlinie über die Rechte der Verbraucher schließen sich Überlegungen zur Notwendigkeit gemeinschaftsrechtlicher Sanktionsvorgaben an.
