Modern American Remedies: Cases and Materials is known for a strong organization that highlights remedies categories and concepts within daily teaching units of roughly equal length, each focused on a clear central theme. The text achieves a solid balance of public and private law and integrates basic legal and economic information, without letting either dominate the book. Memorable cases and well-written notes offer plenty of information to inform class discussion. Following the same organization, scope of coverage, and daily units as the Fourth Edition, the Concise Fourth features tightly focused notes emphasizing basic principles and central points, with fewer illustrations and fewer collateral issues. The volume of notes has been reduced by more than 35%. The Fourth Edition introduces 36 new principal cases, including: In re September 11th Litigation (on the measure of damages for the destruction of the World Trade Center); eBay v. MercExchange LLC (on the prerequisites to an injunction, or on undue hardship, depending on one's point of view); Exxon Shipping Co. v. Baker (on the federal common law standard for measuring punitive damages); and Philip Morris USA v. Williams (on the constitutional limits on punitive damages). Substantial reworking of Chapter 8, on restitution, reflects the Restatement (Third) of Restitution and Unjust Enrichment.

This comprehensive Understanding treatise provides an introduction to the basic legal rules and principles that constitute the law of remedies as applied by United States courts. The Second Edition of Understanding Remedies represents a major reworking of the original work. The chapters have been reorganized so that the materials follow the customary approach of teaching remedies: (1) General principles applicable to damages, injunctions, and restitution; (2) Remedy defenses; (3) Applications, e.g., bodily injury remedies, breach of contract remedies; (4) Special problems, e.g., punitive damages, attorneys' fees. The materials are comprehensive and respect the nuance and subtlety of the subject. Understanding Remedies presents the richness of the topic to students who wish to gain both a fundamental appreciation of the subject and an insight into the myriad ways remedies influence the shape and dimension of modern American law.
