Chapter Summary

This conclusion chapter presents an overview of topics discussed in other chapters of the book. This book attempts to provide new insights into the contract of letting and hiring. Author has gone further than merely providing a "law in context" account of the contract. Rather, he has used Fiori's insight into the conceptual structure of the contract of letting and hiring combined with Kehoe's notion of "normative reality" to indentify a number of stock examples on which the Roman jurists focused when developing the contract of letting and hiring. This has been done to further expand upon an idea first raised by Martin, namely that the Roman jurists used certain basic common ideas in order to develop the contract of letting and hiring. These "normative" examples operated within a specific context provided by Roman law.
