Sales: A Systems Approach
This problems-based casebook covers the full range of sales systems, including those governing domestic sales of goods, leases, international sales, and real estate sales. Refined and improved for its Second Edition, Sales: A Systems Approach makes the study of sales both meaningful and comprehensible.

by emphasizing the institutions and mechanisms used by market participants to conduct transactions, the text reveals how the UCC plays out in practice
expanded coverage of sales systems goes beyond domestic sales of goods to include leases, international sales, and real estate sales

the book is divided into sections by class assignment for ease of teaching
