This is a 22-chapter, abbreviated version of Business Law Today: Text, Summarized Cases, Legal, Ethical, Regulatory, and International Environment, 4e. Many features focus on the global, political, ethical, social, environmental, and cultural context of business law. For Critical Analysis questions follow all cases, and now appear within most of the pedagogical features. An appendix to Chapter 1, chapter-ending Case Briefing Assignments, and a separate text-ending appendix provide ample opportunity for students to learn how to analyze case law. The Personal Law Handbook, 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. This text explicitly meets AACSB curriculum requirements
