The critical analyses presented in the Fifth Edition of Murray on Contracts provide students with the insights necessary to gain a comprehensive understanding of the law of contracts. This text also considers and critically analyzes statutory modifications of neoclassical contract doctrine beyond the UCC.

Many of the sections contain captioned subdivisions so that the reader is more easily directed to topical discussions within the sections. The author includes citation tables to Restatement and UCC sections as well as a table of cases, along with an expansive index. In addition, the appendix includes the text of the United Nations convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (CISG), and the final chapter provides an introduction to the CISG and compares its key provisions with the UCC and other principles of American contract law.
