This book offers an up-to-date introduction to insurance contract law in the United Kingdom. Malcolm Clarke provides students with a clear outline of insurance law, and also alerts them to relevant social and theoretical issues stemming from the law and practice of insurance. The discussion's framework is a tracing of the life of an insurance contract from purchase to claim, which is used to summarize both settled and satisfactory legal rules--and to highlight more controversial matters and invite reflection on the objectives of insurance law. Clarke finally asks whether these objectives have been achieved.
