Book Review: Cases and Materials on Contracts, 47 Law Library Journal 60 (1954)

Abstract

Cases and Materials on Contracts, by Friedrich Kessler and Malcolm P. Sharp. New York, PrenticeHall, 1953. pp. xvi, 807. (PrenticeHall Law School Series) $8.50.

The two principal characteristics of this casebook are described by the authors as a "pluralistic approach" and the division of the law into "two sectors governed by principles which are inconsistent 'with if not diametrically opposed to each other." The first of these opposing principles is "the principle of free volition"; the second is that "freedom of volition is limited if not suspended by an ever-expanding system of judicial and legislative control."
