This introduction outlines contributors’ key contributions, while also providing analysis of the background literature on contract, status, and fiduciary law. The contributions to this book demonstrate that inquiries into the relationship between contract, status, and fiduciary law can offer new insights into both contract theory and fiduciary theory. While the existing literature often focuses on the possibility that fiduciary relationships are contractual in nature, the present volume offers innovative accounts of how these principles interact across fields. The resulting work can help us better understand status relationships, voluntary undertakings, duties of loyalty, equity, employment law, tort law, the law of remedies, political theory, and the theory of the firm.

Keywords:   contract law, status, fiduciary law, duty of loyalty, theory of the firm, equity, tort law, remedies, political theory, private law
