This book reflects the impact of contemporary developments in civil procedure without losing sight of the fact that much of civil procedure still concerns traditional rules and mechanisms and time-honored policies. The chronological order of this book roughly follows that of a lawsuit - preceding from the initial complaint and pleadings to appeal and effect of judgment. This book also examines the policies and mechanisms of the American adversary system, including criticisms of the system and the procedural innovations that attempt to remedy the shortcomings. The authors include interdisciplinary materials reflecting practices in other countries and various states to introduce readers to alternative ways of dealing with various procedural issues.
