We are planning to add a new feature to the next edition of the casebook that will compare U.S. rules and approaches to those internationally. The will identify these comparisons as “international boxes” and we will have at least two for each chapter. Prof. Laurel Terry of Penn State University, who is joining the casebook as a co-author, has written these boxes. Please feel free to use them in your classes and to offer Prof. Terry any comments or suggestions you have that will assist in the writing of the next edition.
