This far-reaching work is divided into two parts. Part I exhaustively analyzes the creation and enforcement of common-law contracts such as employment agreements, construction contracts, leases, contracts for the sale of land, options, broker's contracts, and guaranty agreements. The in-depth analysis covers cases decided from 1795 to the present. Part II thoroughly examines contracts for the sale of goods as governed by North Carolina's version of Article 2 of the Uniform Commercial Code and as interpreted by the State's appellate courts. Warranty issues are given an extensive discussion, as is the interplay between the UCC's Article 2 and North Carolina's Products Liability Act. An appendix containing the full text of North Carolina's version of the UCC's Article 2 is also included.
