    Cases, Problems, and Materials on Contracts is known for pioneering the problem method of law school teaching. A staple in classrooms for decades, it stands out from other texts in the scope of its coverage and its use of short, carefully-constructed Problems to expose students to new concepts, reinforce what they have just learned, and stimulate thought. The Eighth Edition, the first since the passing of Thomas Crandall and the addition of David Horton as co-author, is more accessible than ever. It introduces complicated issues with a clear narrative summary or explicit statement of black-letter law. The cases have been tightly edited for best effect.

    The book can also be easily adapted to fit various pedagogical needs. Although it starts with “Agreement” and moves to “Consideration,” it is also designed for teachers who prefer to begin with “Consideration” or “Remedies.” It can be used in courses that both include and exclude sales. Finally, because it is shorter than most other texts in this field, it works in 4-unit, 5-unit, and 6-unit courses.
