Street on Torts
"Street on Torts" clearly explains how torts actually work and the social purposes behind them. The book covers the whole range of torts, including, particularly, negligence, defamation, trespass, the economic torts, nuisance, and the growing area of breach of confidence / privacy. The new edition has been substantially reworked, especially in the areas of the duty of care in negligence, causation, product liability, vicarious liability, defamation, occupier's liability, and the economic torts. This rewriting and reorganisation within chapters has been necessitated by a host of significant decisions since the last edition in 1999. The growing significance of the Human Rights Act 1998 throughout the whole of tort law - but especially in relation to the protection of privacy, defamation, and nuisance - is also fullly covered in this edition.
