About this book


Torts make headline news. From mass disasters like Hillsborough and King's Cross to scandal-mongering in the popular press, torts are seldom far from the front pages. Yet, despite its human interest, the law of torts is notoriously difficult for students. This new edition is an accessible introduction to this exciting area of law which covers the basic principles of the law of torts as well as directing the reader towards the complexities of the subject and its relationship with society.
