Providing a detailed overview of the law of nuisance this book addresses contentious issues such as the distinction between the rule in Rylands v Fletcher and the law of private nuisance; the law that excludes personal injuries from the remit of nuisance, and the relationship between public and private nuisance.

The book also considers statutory nuisance and the extent to which it can be seen to exceed private and public nuisances as well as utility of nuisance as an environmental tort. This book provides the most up-to-date and comprehensive treatment of the law of nuisance, drilling down to distinctions between these different types of nuisance as well as examining in detail the overlaps between them.
