This newly revised book draw on the expertise of its authors, the reporters for the Restatement (Third) of Torts: Products Liability, to provide a solid introduction in a compact format.
In addition to its outstanding authorship, Product Liability: Problems and Process, Fifth Edition, offers:
Full integrations of the Restatement rules and comments in the text.
A problem-based approach that applies the law to real life situations.
A student friendly mix of cases, notes, and problems to introduce black letter law and its underlying policies.
A manageable length without sacrificing important coverage.
Changes for the Fifth Edition respond to developments in the field:
Author's Dialogues -- informal, highly engaging discussions and debates between the authors that raise interesting and provocative points about important issues.
Material from the Restatement, General Principles, incorporated in the coverage of proximate cause.
Expanded treatment of design defects relocated to Chapter 4, with discussion of special problems of proof of defect.
A separate chapter on Federal Preemption.
New cases, including Speller v. Sears, Roebuck, Laidlaw v. Hariton, Rider v. Sandoz Pharmaceuticals, D'Amario v. Ford Motor Company, and Metro-North Commuter R.R. v. Buuckley.
New hypotheticals and problems
Unmatched in authority, quality, and currency, Products Liability: Problems and Process, Fifth Edition, deserves your careful consideration for adoption.
