CENGAGE ADVANTAGE BOOKS: FUNDAMENTALS OF BUSINESS LAW: EXCERPTED CASES, 3rd Edition is an affordable, easy-to-read alternative to traditional Business Law books, offering coverage of essential legal topics, including contracts and sales, in a brief, paperback format. The first of its kind, this book uses an excerpted approach to deliver key case content, rather than summaries, giving you critical opportunities to interpret and analyze the issues yourself. Discussions of the hottest issues like financial and health-care reform, cyber law and the online environment, the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, and the housing crisis give you a thorough picture of the current legal environment without extraneous details, making this an ideal choice for quick review, particularly for those interested in contracts and sales. Of course, CENGAGE ADVANTAGE BOOKS: FUNDAMENTALS OF BUSINESS LAW: EXCERPTED CASES, 3rd Edition delivers all the learning tools you expect in a Cengage book, such as box features, examples, review questions, learning objectives, self-testing, and more to bring the issues to life and help you get the most out of your reading.
