Revolutionary New Casebook Just like the Rest

OK, this is just funny. West labels this casebook ‘revolutionary’ because it is just like other traditional casebooks. Apparently other casebooks in Law and Accounting are not traditional in the sense that they feature a lot more narrative than one normally finds in a casebook. So creating a traditional casebook becomes a revolutionary act. Man, it makes my head spin.

Cunningham’s Latest Casebook Released – Boston College
In a recent press release, West calls the book “revolutionary,” in that it uses primary materials instead of author narrative, presenting a comprehensive selection and organization of original accounting pronouncements and legal cases applying them. The book is also highly-traditional: primary materials are the dominant textual vehicle used in virtually all other law school courses. By adopting this traditional approach for law and accounting, Cunningham’s new book puts the subject on par with other law school courses.
