Contracts: Cases and Doctrine, Sixth Edition, features a mix of lightly-edited classic and contemporary cases that stresses current contract doctrine along with the essential lawyering skill of case analysis—how to sift through the facts of the case to discern the prevailing rules and theory. Randy Barnett and Nate Oman’s innovative text introduces each case and provides the historical background of the iconic cases that make the study of contract law engaging. Study Guide questions help students identify salient issues as they read each case. Judicial biographies of each judge provides additional context. Key Features of the New Edition: The 6th Edition has been edited to make it even more modular and therefore easier for professors to select which doctrines to cover. The introductory materials have been shortened to permit a speedier entry to whichever basic doctrine the professor chooses to begin with. A new section on public policy defenses has been added. Recent developments involving arbitration agreements in the wake of the Supreme Court’s AT&T Mobility case are also covered. In addition, roughly a dozen new cases have been substituted, chosen for their interesting facts or their proven pedagogical usefulness. As always, every effort is made to provide students with background materials on the litigation, such as new judicial biographies and excerpts from recently published scholarship dealing with the cases covered. New cases include: Jordan v. Knafel Arnold Porter v. Fuqua Industries Nguyen v. Barnes & Noble Inc. Also, in keeping with the book’s focus on the “classic” cases we have included some iconic cases missing from earlier editions, including: Masterson v. Sine Security Stove & Manfacturing Co. v. American Railway Express Lefkowitz v. Great Minneapolis Surplus Store Lawrence v. Fox Harris v. Watson

There has been an exponential rise in the use of ICA for resolving international business disputes, yet international arbitration is a scarcely regulated, specialty industry. International Commercial Arbitration: An Asia Pacific Perspective is the first book to explain ICA topic by topic with an Asia Pacific focus. Written for students and practising lawyers alike, this authoritative book covers the principles of ICA thoroughly and comparatively. For each issue it utilises academic writings from Asia, Europe and elsewhere, and draws on examples of legislation, arbitration procedural rules and case law from the major Asian jurisdictions. Each principle is explained with a simple statement before proceeding to more technical, theoretical or comparative content. Real-world scenarios are employed to demonstrate actual application to practice. International Commercial Arbitration is an invaluable resource that provides unique insight into real arbitral practice specific to the Asia Pacific region, within a global context.

The Revised 4th Edition of Civil Procedure: A Contemporary Approach is updated with references to the impending 2015 amendments to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, as well as case law developments since the 2014 publication date of the Fourth Edition. Major recent case law developments included in this revised edition consist of decisions from the Supreme Court addressing personal jurisdiction (Goodyear Dunlop Tires Operations, S.A. v. Brown, 131 S. Ct. 2846 (2011), J. McIntyre Machinery, Ltd. v. Nicastro, 131 S. Ct. 2780 (2011), and Daimler AG v. Bauman, 134 S. Ct. 746 (2014)), federal question jurisdiction (Gunn v. Minton, 133 S. Ct. 1059 (2013)), removal of class actions (Standard Fire Ins. Co. v. Knowles, 133 S. Ct. 1345 (2013)), change of venue and forum-selection clauses (Atl. Marine Constr. Co., Inc. v. U.S. Dist. Court for W. Dist. of Texas, 134 S. Ct. 568 (2013) [now a principal case]), class certification (Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. v. Dukes, 131 S. Ct. 2541 (2011), Comcast Corp. v. Behrend, 133 S. Ct. 1426 (2013), Amgen Inc. v. Conn. Ret. Plans & Trust Funds, 133 S. Ct. 1184 (2013)), class arbitration waivers (AT&T Mobility LLC v. Concepcion, 131 S. Ct. 1740 (2011) and American Express Co. v. Italian Colors Restaurant, 133 S. Ct. 2304 (2013)), and offers of judgment (Genesis HealthCare Corp. v. Symczyk, 133 S. Ct. 1523 (2013)). Regarding the impending 2015 amendments to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, this revised edition makes reference to them in the text where appropriate. The changes include the "Duke Rules" package, which alters Rules 1, 4, 16, 26, 30, 31, 33 and 34 to make proportionality a main component of the scope of discovery, to eliminate access to subject matter discovery, require early discussions regarding preservation and privilege protection, permit early document requests, and shorten the time permitted to issue scheduling orders and to achieve service of process. The amendment to Rule 37 codifies an approach to preservation and spoliation that favors curative measures unless there is intentional spoliation, in which case more severe sanctions such as adverse inference instructions or dismissal become available. This edition also fully incorporates recent amendments to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure and to Title 28 of the U.S. Code, including the Federal Courts Jurisdiction and Venue Clarification Act of 2011 and the 2013 amendment to Rule 45 (subpoenas). Finally, the Revised Fourth Edition integrates references to online assessment tools in the Casebook Plus platform. These consist of a bank of 200 multiple-choice questions that provide comprehensive assessment of the topics covered in this book, with detailed feedback consisting of explanations for both correct and incorrect responses. This feature provides an unparalleled opportunity to engage with the material actively as the course progresses and permits students and professors to determine the extent to which the material is being learned.

This is a terrific book for people who want to get a basic understanding of how the legal system operates. In simple language, Professor D'Amato explains & applies some of the deepest ideas of law to everyday legal problems & issues. By showing how lawyers & judges think about legal issues in our society, D'Amato dissolves a lot of the mystique surrounding the legal system. This is also a fine book for courses in judicial & legal process. My students tell me that this is one of the most readable books they have ever been assigned in college. Alan Sager, University of Texas at Austin In Anthony D'Amato's writing, two passions merge: law & language. His eloquence -& hence the sheer readability of his writing -is virtually a byword among teachers & students alike. This "introduction to law" is far from basic in its coverage, yet it never becomes mired in tedious detail or lost in impenetrable fog. It is perhaps the only reader-friendly book available today that truly clarifies the deep & basic concepts of law in general, & American law in particular. It does not simply introduce the concepts; rather, it is an introduction to thinking about the concepts.

Contracts: Cases, Discussion, and Problems, Fourth Edition is known for its strikingly clear, straightforward text that illuminates cases as well as concepts and theory. The book focuses on modern cases to expose students to contemporary contract law, but it also includes many important or iconic older cases. The cases are set in context by extensive author-written explanatory text. Insightful questions draw attention to difficult and crucial aspects of the law and prompt vigorous class discussion. Numerous problems, ranging from simple to complex, supplement cases and introduce topics taught most effectively through problems. The casebook’s traditional organization begins with formation and then corresponds to the sequence followed by the Restatement (2nd) of Contracts and treatises. Its concise, efficient presentation results in an optimum length for the course. Procedural issues are highlighted when presented by the cases and transactional issues such as drafting, client counseling, and negotiation are raised through the use of questions and small exercises throughout the text. Strengthening the text’s focus on contemporary methods of contracting, modern issues in standard contracts are explored along with contracts entered into electronically. International and comparative material offers alternative approaches for students to consider, such as those taken by the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (CISG) and the UNIDROIT Principles of International Commercial Contracts.
