    First Published in 1971. This study is a comparative investigation of contractual obligations in Ghana and Nigeria. It has often been suggested that the law of civil responsibility in West Africa is the same as the current English law position on the subject. This book sets out to examine the basis of this assumption, an exercise which has never been attempted by any previous writer in West African law. The study has been divided into five major parts.

    Part 1; Chapter 1 Introduction; Chapter 2 Precedent and the Authority of English Decisions; Chapter 3 Judicial Precedent in Ghana and Nigeria; Part 2 Valid Agreements Two-Party Situations:; Chapter 4 The Nature of Agreement; Chapter 5 Offer and Acceptance; Chapter 6 Form and Consideration; Chapter 7 Intention to Create Legal Relations; Part 3 Valid Agreements: More Than Two Parties; Chapter 8 Privity; Chapter 9 Agreements between Two Parties Where One Is or Both are Represented By a Third, i.e. Agency; Chapter 10 Agreements between Two Parties Where One or Both Subsequently Transfer to a Third; Part 4 Defective Agreements; Chapter 11 Defects in Reaching an Agreement; Chapter 12 Defects in the Validity of an Agreement; Chapter 13 Agreements Affected by Informality; Chapter 14 Agreements Affected by Illegality; Chapter 15 Agreements That Infringe Public Policy; Chapter 16 Defects Due to Impossibility of Performance; Part 5 Obligations Created by Agreements: A Functional Analysis; Chapter 17 Agreements and the Courts; Chapter 18 Agreements and the State; Chapter 19 Ultimate Remedies for the Breach or Other Avoidance of Obligations;
