Abstract

'Good faith' is a term often used but rarely defined or analysed with care. In this short volume O'Connor has undertaken a formidable task: the development of a general principle of good faith that is applicable throughout English law. He begins with a proposed definition and then proceeds through brief analyses of the good faith concept in six areas of the law (administrative law, contracts, company law, criminal law, torts, trusts and property). He makes a quick excursion across the Channel to consider the civil law approach to the principle of good faith and then concludes with a chapter devoted to the synthesis of the cases considered in the book and to a re-examination of his proposed definition.
