This is a longer (footnoted) version of a review of book on “Long Term Contracts”, comprising 21 substantive chapters or commentaries as well as topical introductions, which will appeal to academics and practitioners interested in dispute resolution and comparative law as well as contract law. The volume, derived from a conference held in Perth in 2012 and edited by a senior counsel with a junior solicitor from Western Australia, adds a useful combination of theoretical and practical papers to the growing literature on long-term contracts, especially for Australian and other common law jurists. With a focus on resources and energy contracts, the book is a welcome in-depth addition to more commercially-oriented publications on the subject.
