Mastering Torts: A Student's Guide to the Law of Torts
"Mastering Torts presents in a clear, narrative form a doctrinal overview of the law of torts. By clarifying the basic rules governing tort liability, and illuminating their application to specific fact situations, Mastering Torts describes the main features of the American tort system." "Mastering Torts discusses more than two hundred illustrative cases. Each of these decisions is presented in a way that probes the meaning and limits of particular rules, but also reveals a broader perspective on the law governing compensation for personal injuries and property damage."--BOOK JACKET.
