tray Every case tells a different story. In first-year contracts, the story of Hamer v.
Sidway1 is among the most familiar. An uncle promises his fifteen-year-old
nephew that he will give him $5,000 on his twenty-first birthday if he promises in
return not to smoke, drink, or play cards or billiards for money until then. The legal
question the case presents is straightforward: If the nephew keeps his end of the
bargain, ...

But planters also asserted their interests—their desire to keep labor costs down,
their concern about maintaining a disciplined labor force—and agents of the
Freedmen's Bureau arrived with their own ideas about how free labor should be
implemented in the South through contracts. Reconstructing labor therefore
involved balancing the ideas and interests of three different groups of people,
leaving historians to question just how much control former slaves really 355
exerted in the ...

flooding with others was to rework contracts with freed people.'2 For the first
couple of years after the war, most contracts between landowners in the Tensas
Basin and the laborers who worked their land were for wages rather than a share
of the crop.33 Under a wage contract a planter might be obligated to provide
rations and quarters even during a flood and would certainly be obligated to pay
for all work ...

I have received a contract offer from the Philadelphia club, but I believe I have the
right to consider offers from other clubs before making any decisions. I, therefore,
request that you make known to all Major League clubs my feelings in this matter,
and advise them of my availability for the 1970 season.2 In it, Flood had publicly
challenged the hegemony ofbaseball by requesting freedom through the
elimination of the reserve clause and a reversal of baseball's antitrust exemption.

I think even now I probably function in relation to academics in a way that they
find diffi fi cult, because I'm an academic [on a non-academic fi contract]. (student
services manager, post-1992 institution 1, UK) There is also a cadre of staff with
doctorates who may not have academic contracts, but who have acquired
generic skills from research training programmes: One of the things that I've
learnt a lot and passed on to others now, is about explaining one's transferable
skills, of which ...

New Labour's promises of devolution, participation, empowerment and public
sector delivery contracts for voluntary organisations and social enterprises have
been ramped up with the Coalition's big society. The commissioning model of
government is a 'wolf in sheep's clothing' because it will lead to private monopoly,
commercialised services, with agendas dominated by the vested interests of
private contractors (Whitfield, 2011b). Big society is dependent on outsourcing
and is ...

... reconstruct the welfare state. While many progressives still defend the
American welfare state, cracks in the foundation of welfare state liberalism have
been recognized by at least some liberal welfare philosophers. Some of these
philosophers alerted the public about the new "pluralism" in welfare,1 that the
American welfare state was "adrift,"2 and that "rethinking social welfare" was in
order.3 These were contemporaneous with the attempt by the right to contract the
welfare state by ...
