This is a 22-chapter, abbreviated version of Business Law Today: Text, Summarized Cases, Legal, Ethical, Regulatory, and International Environment, 4e. This version, however, uses hypothetical examples instead of cases to illustrate legal issues as they apply to business. Many features focus on the global, political, ethical, social, environmental, and cultural context of business law. The Guide to Personal Law, included as an appendix, covers practical aspects of law such as family law, jury duty, housing law, and other topics. Two new pedagogical features emphasize technology and the Internet. Key content changes include the integration of material on lease contracts and Article 2A throughout all sales chapters, as well as the revision of negotiable instruments material to reflect law based on Revised Articles 3 and 4.
