The law of estoppel is a modern concept with a medieval label. It concerns the enforcement of obligations outside the law of contract and tort; we might call it the law of consistency, which obliges people to stand by things they have said. This is a book for lawyers, but will be of interest to other readers as a picture of how the law has tried to deal with its own shortcomings. The book will be of interest practitioners and scholars in other jurisdictions particularly Australia and New Zealand.

This contracts casebook includes introductions that quickly orient students within unfamiliar territories. Cases present both the doctrine applied and, in some instances, the shortcomings of that doctrine. The authors express their disagreement about basic issues, so that students can experience the range of possible in modern contract law. To save time, the authors avoid extensive citation of academic scholarship except as it pertains to the cases being studied. Certain traditional subjects¬ such as offer and acceptance and consideration¬ are reduced to a minimum, while more contemporary subjects¬ such as form contracts and the modern concept of unconscionability¬ are considered at length, as is arbitration and the Supreme Court's historic decision in AT and T Mobility v. Concepcion.
