Insurance Law: Doctrines and Principles is a useful, up-to-date, and affordable textbook, providing a detailed examination of the developing law of insurance and combining exposition of the law with critical analysis. The book is designed with the needs of undergraduate and postgraduate students in mind. The text is enhanced by extensive citations to UK case law and academic commentaries, making the book ideal for students, scholars, and practitioners alike. Following the widely acclaimed first and second editions, this third edition reflects the many changes that have occurred in the law of insurance since 2005. The book is divided into two parts. Part I considers the regulation of insurance business and the general principles underlying the law of insurance contracts. Part II examines the way in which these principles are shaped by the particular insurance context in which they operate. The book is readable and authoritative, with a sound grasp of the realities of insurance practice. It is well sourced and generous with supplementary points. The first edition was cited with approval by the Supreme Court of Canada in Oldfield v Transamerica Life Insurance Co of Canada (2002).
