I expect that most readers of this book will be first-year law students who will use it as a resource to assist in learning and understanding the law of contracts—to prepare for class, to unravel and supplement class materials and discussion, and to review and prepare for exams. In deciding on the scope, depth, and approach of the book’s coverage, I have aimed at their needs. My focus has been on what is likely to be most appropriate and helpful to a person who approaches contract law as a novice and is trying to assimilate and understand not only the details but also the larger issues of this complex subject.
In revising this book for the seventh edition, I have retained the scope, approach, and most of the material in the sixth edition, including the expanded treatment of standard contracts and contracts formed through electronic media, and the notes on the transnational perspective of contract law.
