The 16th edition of Bankman, Shaviro, and Stark, Federal Income Taxation (the second-leading - but we try harder - casebook for introductory income tax classes in law schools) is now ready for prime time. I just got a copy, and they should be generally available momentarily.
We'll have greatly expanded Internet features this time around, both for adopting faculty and students who use the casebook. But in addition, despite adding new material to remain current, we have struck a vigorous blow against creeping length, the great malady that multiple-edition casebooks tend to have. The 15th edition was 819 pages, but the 16th edition checks in at an at least comparatively svelte 730 pages, reflecting a more than 10 percent reduction.
