Major new developments in this updated edition include the impact of tort reform processes; the impact of human rights instruments on tort law; the contraction of liability, with the impact of civil liability legislation with its emphasis on personal autonomy; the new consumer law legislation; and the new uniform defamation code. The key strength of the 10th edition is its examination, and elucidation, of legal principle. This text is known for its distillation of the essence of tort legal principles and its critical evaluation of them. The authors preserve Professor Fleming's scholarship while contributing their own insight. This edition is the must-have resource for all practitioners and scholars of tort law within the common law jurisdictions.
