In English law, an actionable misrepresentation is a false statement of fact made during pre-contractual negations by one party which induces the other party to enter into a contract. First published in 1911, Spencer Bower & Handley is the most authoritative and comprehensive book available on the topic of actionable misrepresentation. It covers fraudulent, innocent and negligent misrepresentations and misrepresentations made actionable by statute and sets out in full the law and practice of bringing an action for misrepresentation. It also deals with the remedies and defences available, providing substantial coverage of key decisions and legislative activity in both the UK and Commonwealth jurisdictions. It also includes in-depth treatment of the Hedley Byrne principles and recent cases.show more
