Overview

This edition continues to emphasize not only contract doctrine, but also contract theory and practice. As with the first two editions, the book is predominantly a casebook and includes many important old and famous cases, along with many more recent opinions that facilitate comprehension of the leading rules and principles. Part One stresses the function of contract law to support social exchange and addresses the major theories of obligation and associated remedies. Parts Two through Four present important stages of contractual activity: consummation of agreements, performance or breach, and the cessation of contractual relations. Part Five treats rights and duties of third parties.
