This text brings together important legal studies and a wealth of materials by economists, historians, political scientists, and sociologists to illuminate the intellectual currents and social and political forces behind contemporary practices and procedures. Designed to complement any standard casebook, it will be an invaluable resource both for the required contracts course and for any upper-level contract theory course. The Foundations of Law Series offers a collection of comprehensive readings that provide an interdisciplinary perspective on a substantive legal field. Edited by scholars who have made important contributions, the readings are designed to provide an accessible introduction to the leading scholarship in a field. Accompanying notes and questions permit students to engage fully in the literature on their own, as well as to aid their understanding of material covered in classes.
