Tort Law: A Modern Perspective is an advanced yet accessible
introduction to tort law for lawyers, law students, and others.
Reflecting the way tort law is taught today, it explains the cases
and legal doctrines commonly found in casebooks using modern ideas
about public policy, economics, and philosophy. With an emphasis on
policy rationales, Tort Law encourages readers to think critically
about the justifications for legal doctrines. Although the topic of
torts is specific, the conceptual approach should pay dividends to
those who are interested broadly in regulatory policy and the role
of law. Incorporating three decades of advancements in tort
scholarship, Tort Law is the textbook for modern tort classrooms.
