The casebook’s traditional organization begins with formation and then corresponds to the sequence followed by the Restatement (2nd) of Contracts and treatises. Its concise, efficient presentation results in an optimum length for the course. Transactional issues such as drafting, client counseling, and negotiation are emphasized through the use of questions and small exercises throughout the text. Strengthening the text’s focus on contemporary methods of contracting, modern issues in standard contracts are explored along with contracts entered into electronically. International and comparative material offers alternative approaches for students to consider, such as those taken by the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (CISG) and the UNIDROIT Principles of International Commercial Contracts.

New to the Fifth Edition:

  • A continuing focus on contracting via electronic media.
  • Fresh cases, problems, and text throughout the book to update the discussion and provide new perspectives on contemporary approaches to the law.
  • An increase in the number of problems and the conversion of former case notes into problems.
  • Revised multiple choice self-assessment questions for each chapter at the end of the book.

Professors and students will benefit from:

  • The most important feature of the book is its deliberate design to be accessible and interesting to students and to provide them with materials that are challenging and thought-provoking, but also coherent and carefully organized so as to avoid unnecessary confusion.
  • The cases in the book are carefully edited and are selected for accessibility, interesting and attractive facts, and clear exposition. Modern cases, many of which are very recent, are emphasized, but the book contains a good selection of older cases that are iconic or continue to be the best cases for teaching a particular subject.
  • The book adopts a multifaceted approach to learning, including textual exposition, case analysis, questions, and problems. While some problems are relatively simple others are more complex. Many problems are based on decided cases, which are summarized briefly in the text of the problem.
