Randy Barnett's Contracts, Cases and Doctrine presents a relatively straightforward set of teaching materials, aptly chosen for modern teaching techniques. Careful exposition of fundamentals permits professors to use class time more productively. The concentration on fundamentals also frees the professor to choose the specific elaborations she finds most valuable for the class or the material.
