Modern American Remedies: Cases and Materials is known for astrong organization that highlights remedies categories and conceptswithin daily teaching units of roughly equal length, each focused on aclear central theme. The text achieves a solid balance of public andprivate law and integrates basic legal and economic information, withoutletting either dominate the book. Memorable cases and well-written notesoffer plenty of information to inform class discussion. An excellentTeachers’ Manual includes daily teaching units, suggested assignmentsheets for a variety of courses from 1 to 5 hours, and suggestions forteaching the cases.Following the same organization, scope of coverage, and daily units asthe Fourth Edition, the Concise Fourth features tightlyfocused notes emphasizing basic principles and central points, withfewer illustrations and fewer collateral issues. The volume of notes hasbeen reduced by more than 35%.

MercExchange LLC (on the prerequisites to an injunction, oron undue hardship, depending on one’s point of view); ExxonShipping Co. v. Baker (on the federal common law standard formeasuring punitive damages); and Philip Morris USA v. Williams(on the constitutional limits on punitive damages).
