Carper (legal studies and conflict management, California State University) and West (law and real estate, emeritus, California State University) introduce basics of business law and individual law issues to students with no previous courses in law. The text begins with material on business law issues such as constitutional law and dispute resolution. Coverage then turns toward aspects of the law affecting the individual, such as family law and personal real estate. This fourth edition features chapter objectives, a new appendix on how to brief a case, and a new section on ethical reasoning. Annotation ©2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
