What does Bargain mean in American Law?

The definition of Bargain in the law of the United States, as defined by the lexicographer Arthur Leff in his legal dictionary is:

The process of reaching an agreement (“They bargained out the terms for the sale”), or the agreement thus reached (“OK, here”s our bargain”). Bargains, however, can be reached without bargaining, as when a deal is proffered on a take-it-or-leave-it basis and the offeree takes it. See adhesion contract. Thus, insofar as the bargaining process is supposed to supply justification for validating an apparently one-sided deal, it is not enough to point to the existence of an agreement as proof that any process of reaching it ever occurred. Cf unconscionability. Colloquially, “bargain” is used to mean not just a deal but a good deal, as in “Malleys has some great bargains in TVs this”week.” Cf bargain sale.
