Cases and Commentary on Tort

Front Cover
Longman, 2000 - Torts - 587 pages
This book provides a mainstream selection of cases on tort, together with statutes, linked by commentary. Each chapter is prefaced by a highly readable introduction alerting the reader to the salient features of the topic under discussion. The text has been designed to be accessible to student readers, and the extracts are of a length that aims to be both manageable and informative. The commentary places the extracts in context, points to other cases for contrast and comparison, and contains, where appropriate, extracts from other relevant authorities. In the light of the increasing influence of EC legislation, particular emphasis is given to those areas which demonstrate this influence, e.g. breach of statutory duty and product liability. The book is intended to be used to provide a reference to key sources to which students cannot always be guaranteed access. The new edition has been brought up to date with important new decisions in the area.
