'Essays in Honour of Hugh Beale' brings together the reflections of eminent scholars on important issues facing contract, consumer and commercial law, reflecting perfectly the facets of the very distinguished scholar they celebrate -- Alberto De Franceschi * EuCML - Journal of European Consumer and Market Law *
...this is an excellent book. It is a fitting way to honour a popular man who has had such a positive and lasting impact on commercial and consumer law. -- Laura Mcgregor * The Edinburgh Law Review *
A great scholar needs to be honoured with a great book. The collection of essays edited by Louise Gullifer and Stefan Vogenauer in honour of Hugh Beale achieved the result ... this volume demonstrates that there are several reasons not to abandon a double, English and European, perspective on contract and commercial law ... the academic work of Hugh Beale is an example for future generations. -- Francesco Paolo Patti, Adjunct Professor of Private Law, Bocconi University * European Review of Private Law *
