This textbook treatment of US business law by Davidson (business law, Radford U.), Forsythe (business law, California State U. at Fresno) and Knowles (emerita, business law, Indiana U. at South Bend) is oriented toward training future business people, not lawyers, and is therefore organized "along the lines of how business people think about the law," with torts covered in the chapter on agency and remedies covered in the contracts chapter, for example. Each chapter includes an introductory classic court case introducing key issues and a concluding contemporary case that asks students to develop their own judgments. Each case summarizes the facts of the case, the questions being decided by the court, and the court's holding, and provides excerpts of court's reasoning. A fictional case of one single company is woven throughout the text in order to illustrate the interconnection of issues discussed. Forty chapters are topically organized into sections on foundations of law and the US legal system, contracts, sales and leases, negotiables, debtor-creditor relations, agency, business organizations, government regulation of business, and property protection.
