The Supreme Court has laid down important principles in commercial matters, particularly in matters arising from arbitration proceedings. Decisions of highest courts from common law jurisdictions, viz. United Kingdom, Australia, Canada, Singapore, Malaysia, of the past decade have also been discussed. The edition states the law as reported until September 2011. Volume 1 of the book covers The Indian Contract Act, 1872 from sections 1 to 67 and Volume 2 covers the Indian Contract Act, 1872 from sections 68 to End and The Specific Relief Act, 1963 from sections 1 to 44.
