Contracts: Cases, Discussion, and Problems is known for its strikingly clear, straightforward text that illuminates cases as well as concepts and theory. Carefully edited modern, engaging cases are presented in context along with classic older cases. Insightful questions draw attention to difficult and crucial aspects of the law and prompt vigorous class discussion. Manageable problems supplement cases and introduce topics taught most effectively through problems. 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. The Third Edition introduces new cases, updated discussion, and challenging problems that tackle issues arising from the growing use of electronic media in the formation and performance of contracts. Fresh cases, problems, and text throughout the book provide new perspectives on contemporary approaches to the law. A focus on and full treatment of Revised Article 1 and Current Article 2 respond to the widespread enactment of the Article 1 revisions. Recognizing the failure of the proposed revisions of Article 2, the Third Edition no longer refers to revised Article 2. By responding to adopters' suggestions and by reorganizing for clarity, the Third Edition has greatly enhanced its teaching effectiveness.
