This book provides a systematic analysis of good faith and fairness in consumer contracts. A controversial and topical issue given the recent Unfair Terms Directive/Regulations and the questions as to its impact on English law, the book examines the complexity of 'fairness' as a legal and moral concept and its relationship with wider socio-economic policies such as European integration.
