What is included with this book?

Summary

The authors' goal in this new, second edition was to update & enhance the materials. At the same time, however, they used a general presumption against change & retained as many of the cases & as much of the structure of the book as possible, both for substantive reasons & to ease the transition for teachers. Casebook & Statutory Companion each also available electronically
