About this title
This anthology effectively destroys the widely held apprehension that the Uniform Commerical Code (UCC) is a sterile and lifeless maze. Whereas most teaching and scholarship on the UCC has concerned itself with the narrow issues surrounding one or more provisions of the code, this book tackles the wider topics that make the UCC a living and sometimes controversial text.
The book begins with a treatment of the codification movement from which the UCC project was born and then turns to the history and drafting of the UCC, including selections from its principal drafters. Litowitz raises pointed questions about the jurisprudence and interpretation of the UCC, including challenges from critics. After discussing often-neglected issues surrounding the social and political implications of the UCC, the text turns to currently pressing problems such as the amendment process and the arguments surrounding federalization.
The book's energetic descriptions and clear treatment of its subject facilitate a broader scholarly discussion of the UCC and readers will find the anthology a wonderful complement to the standard materials that are generally available.About the Author:
