The Eleventh Edition continues the approach of earlier editions in emphasizing rich, full-bodied versions of the principal cases, a functionalist approach to the problems of contract law, and analytical notes on such issues as the differences between classical and modern contract law and the role of the limits of cognition in contract law. The new edition includes a great number of new principal cases and notes, including new materials on the Restatement of the Law, Consumer Contracts, the plain meaning rule, agreements to agree, unilateral mistake, race in U.S. contract law, and excusing nonfulfillment of a condition to avoid disproportionate forfeiture. The new edition also reorganizes the materials to begin with the bargain principle and the problem of exploitative bargains. It also includes a chapter on assignment.
