Why should the law care about enforcing contracts? We tend to think of a contract as the legal embodiment of a moral obligation to keep a promise. When two parties enter into a transaction, they are obligated as moral beings to play out the transaction in the way that both parties expect. But this overlooks a broader understanding of the moral possibilities of the market. Just as Shakespeare’s Shylock can stand on his contract with Antonio not because Antonio is bound by honor but because the enforcement of contracts is seen as important to maintaining a kind of social arrangement, today’s contracts serve a fundamental role in the functioning of society. With The Dignity of Commerce, Nathan B. Oman argues persuasively that well-functioning markets are morally desirable in and of themselves and thus a fit object of protection through contract law. Markets, Oman shows, are about more than simple economic efficiency. To do business with others, we must demonstrate understanding of and satisfy their needs. This ability to see the world from another’s point of view inculcates key virtues that support a liberal society. Markets also provide a context in which people can peacefully cooperate in the absence of political, religious, or ideological agreement. Finally, the material prosperity generated by commerce has an ameliorative effect on a host of social ills, from racial discrimination to environmental destruction. The first book to place the moral status of the market at the center of the justification for contract law, The Dignity of Commerce is sure to elicit serious discussion about this central area of legal studies.

This book undertakes a traditional, and inclusive, approach to the law of business organizations. The volume includes materials many books now on the market omit, such as agency and unincorporated business associations, while at the same time maintaining a wide breadth of coverage. As such, the book permits professors to emphasize closely held and other non-public companies while at the same time offering the basics on public company law and practice. Along these lines, the book includes materials on securities offerings, registration, exemptions from registration, and lawyers' responsibilities under the securities laws. Features that make this book a strong teaching tool and a strong learning tool include: • Chapter introductions that summarize and highlight the overall and contextual importance of chapter contents (rather than merely list and categorize the parts of the chapter); • Basic corporate finance nomenclature and other information necessary to an understanding of transactional business law, including individual chapters on basic corporate finance, corporate changes and change of control transactions; • Materials allowing for a comparison of laws and practices in other countries with those of the United States in key areas of study; and • Well-selected notes and problems that permit the integration of concepts and foster application skills at key junctures. This single text allows for coverage of law, underlying theory and policy, and practice skills. In one volume, the book contains material sufficient to educate a young lawyer to function in general business law practice. The emphasis has been on creating a teaching resource that is comprehensive in the view of the five experienced business law teacher-practitioner authors.
