Contracts: Cases and Doctrines' back-to-basics, case-based approach gives students ample doctrinal material as they sift through and analyze facts for prevailing themes and theory. Cases are lightly edited, or presented whole, to give first-year students the opportunity to develop case-analysis skills. The popular flexible organization begins with Remedies, but chapters can be taught in any order. A mixture of classic and contemporary cases adds interest and affords teaching alternatives. Each chapter begins with a brief textual introduction, and Study Guide questions before each case help focus student attention on salient issues. Background information provides context for understanding cases, and abundant citations reference popular and respected sources. Relevant provisions of the Uniform Commercial Code and the Restatement (Second) of Contracts are thoughtfully presented. The revised Fifth Edition has been updated throughout with new cases added to build upon the strengths of the book.

Constitutional Rights: Cases in Context, Second Edition places primary emphasis on how constitutional law has developed since the Founding, its key foundational principles, and recurring debates. By providing both cases and context, it conveys the competing narratives that all lawyers ought to know and all constitutional practitioners need to know. Teachable, manageable, class-sized chunks of material are suited to one-semester courses or reduced credit configurations. Generous case excerpts make the text flexible for most courses. Cases are judiciously supplemented with background readings from various sources. Innovative study guide questions presented before each case help students focus on the salient issues, challenging them to consider the court’s opinions from various perspectives, and suggesting comparisons or connections with other cases. Key Benefits: Revised doctrinal areas with newer cases. Updated background contextual material to reflect current scholarship. A highly accessible and engaging structure that examines the competing narratives that pervade the development of American constitutional law since the founding. Related cases are grouped together into “assignments” and make for a reasonable amount of reading for each topic. A wealth of photographs, maps, and primary documents to bring the cases to life.
