Overview

Steering students through the complexities of Contract Law with this leading textbook from E. Allan Farnsworth. Farnsworth's CONTRACTS, Third Edition, continues to provide students with an emphasis on those topics that figure prominently in most contracts courses, while it presents the most up-to-date information available. The book also offers a real-world focus which applies to all the major topics of the book: enforceability of promises, scope and effect of promises, rights of third parties, and remedies. CONTRACTS, Third Edition, is even more user-friendly, with fewer yet more specific footnotes, valuable citations, and a convenient index. Revealing the entire context of contract law, Farnsworth:

  • explains the rule that governs a particular contractual situation
  • illustrates it with noteworthy examples of the rule in effect
  • poses thought-provoking questions
  • provides thorough answers to the questions
  • offers examples and references throughout the text which incorporate many recent cases Reflecting the major developments in the field, CONTRACTS, Third Edition, addresses:
  • the Vienna Sales Convention (Convention on the International Sale of Goods)
  • UNIDROIT Principles of International Commercial Contracts
  • new issues in pre-contractual liability
  • ongoing employment law contract issues: at-will contracts, handbooks, and public policy exception
  • remedies and lost opportunities For a textbook that is as effective as it is authoritative, there is no substitute for Farnsworth's CONTRACTS,Third Edition.
