Global Issues in Tort Law
Global Issues in Tort Law covers several facets of tort law as seen in global perspective: (1) the tort law of other countries, seen in comparison to U.S. law; (2) domestic U.S. statutes with an international tort law aspect (such as the Alien Tort Statute, the Anti-Terrorism Act and the Foreign Sovereign Immunities Act); and (3) international tort treaties, such as the Warsaw Convention. The book provides a rich selection of materials in manageable chapters that will add depth and perspective to your students' views of the U.S. tort system and the larger legal world. While primarily intended for use as a supplement in torts courses, the book is also suitable as the foundation for a stand-alone course. A detailed Teacher's Manual is available to law faculty.
