This casebook is the Concise, and very modern, Edition of a respected classic of civil procedure casebooks. The key to its brevity is its step-by-step surveyof the subject in Part One. This survey is more than an introduction. It suffices to give the students a complete and solid grounding in civil procedure. There is a tight 250-page comprehensive treatment of modern civil procedure, comprising cases and commentaries and text and questions that progress from pretrial to settlement to trial to judgment to appeal to jurisdiction to complex litigation. In our casebook, brief yet thorough coverage can be effected through its efficient and systematic step-by-step survey. The survey in the Concise Edition has been somewhat beefed up to compensate for the omission of full chapters on pretrial, trial, appeal, and complex litigation. Moreover, the Concise Edition has been revised to account for changes in the law since the casebook's Tenth Edition emerged last year. Although special topics receive coverage slightly different from that in the Field, Kaplan & Clermont casebook's complete version, the intention remains to give them full and solid treatment. Conciseness is achieved by selecting a limited number of topics rather than by retaining many topics in senselessly compact form. Teachers of civil procedure have widely shared goals. First, we want students to perceive the essence and ultimately the thematic coherence of the adversary system prevailing in U.S. courts. Second, we want to convey an understanding of the constitutional and legal structure in which those courts operate. Third, we believe that the whole course serves another purpose, namely, to develop a sense of the importance of any given procedural system in constructing the surrounding body of substantive law. The Concise Edition's retained core of materials allows accomplishing these goals efficiently.
