Designed to map directly on to undergraduate courses, the text offers a broad and detailed description of all core topics, with particular emphasis on the tort of negligence and its related areas. The book explores the underlying themes and principles in the law of torts, drawing on major cases and statute law to illustrate how they operate in practice.

The ninth edition has been thoroughly updated in the light of recent changes in case and statute law. In order to closely mirror course structure, human rights is covered alongside the relevant topics rather than solely in the first chapter. The new text design has also improved the user-friendly nature of the book and an increase in the number of chapters ensures that key areas are more manageable and accessible.

This text is supported by a test bank of multiple choice questions and a companion web site. The companion web site includes updates on new case law and links to other helpful web sites. New to this edition:-

  • An increased number of chapters ensures that major topics are broken up more effectively
  • Coverage of human rights issues is distributed throughout the relevant chapters of the book, rather than appearing in only the first chapter
  • Summary sections have been added at the start of chapters to illustrate the key points to be covered
  • A greater number of headings makes the text easier to navigate
  • Footnotes have been added to ensure that references don't disrupt the flow of the text
  • Larger page size and improved text design will make the book much easier to navigate
  • The book is now supplemented by a companion web site and test bank
