The authors have maintained most of the Problem exercises from the first edition, but have added the leading cases of the past decade to enrich the fabric of the current law. The Teacher's Manual suggests ways the materials may be taught and supplemented.

This new edition of the popular textbook on the law of oil and gas focuses first on ownership of the resource. Chapter 1 examines the common law of oil and gas ownership and the remedies that protect and restrict ownership rights. Chapter 2 focuses on the foundational business relationship used to develop oil and gas in the United States--the oil and gas "lease." Chapter 3 examines common problems encountered in oil and gas conveyancing. Chapter 4 explores legislative and regulatory responses to problems created by common-law ownership concepts, focusing on oil and gas conservation law. Chapter 5 examines the body of law designed to regulate environmental impacts by following the oil and gas development process chronologically, from land acquisition to abandonment. Chapter 6 considers transactions other than leasing and conveying that are frequently encountered in the industry, including assignments, farmouts, operating agreements, drilling contracts, and gas sales contracts. Finally, Chapter 7 examines the complex body of law that must be considered when oil and gas development is taking place on property owned by the federal, state, or tribal governments. Many instructors will build the basic oil and gas law course around Chapters 1 through 4 and save Chapters 5 through 7 for advanced courses. The book is completely updated, reflecting new case law in the traditional oil and gas states and evolving case law in eastern states. The book is further updated to cover shale oil and gas resources.

The fourth edition continues the goal of earlier editions: providing the most current and comprehensive treatment of the modern law of sales and leases in national and international transactions. The new edition includes important new cases to elaborate the continuing development of critical provisions of that law, and to elucidate new case law trends. The official withdrawal of proposed amendments to UCC Articles 2 and 2A provided room for these important cases without a significant increase in the size of the volume. While continuing to emphasize any significant differences between Articles 2 and 2A, the new edition eliminates separate coverage of Article 2A where its provisions replicate Article 2. At the same time, the important distinction between true leases and secured transactions disguised as leases not only continues but is emphasized in new case and text material. Among other current developments, the fourth edition recognizes the Supreme Court's important elaboration of the Federal Arbitration Act and its effect on the holdings and rationales of state courts in adjudicating claims of unconscionable arbitration agreements. The unique CISG coverage of prior editions has been updated, along with the text material throughout the volume, to provide the most current dimensions of sales law.
