Markesinis and Deakin's Tort Law is an authoritative, analytical, and well-established textbook. It provides a general overview of the law and full discussion of the academic debates on all major topics for students and their lecturers, highlighting the relationship between the common law, legislation, and judicial policy.

In addition, the authors provide a variety of comparative and economic perspectives upon the law of tort and its likely development, which will also be of interest to practitioners and judges. In this edition the authors have broken the material down into a greater number of smaller chapters, and restructured the book to bring together closely related topics, mapping to undergraduate law courses.

Key recent developments, including the impact of the Human Rights Act, are given clear coverage. Throughout the book the relationship between the common law, legislation, and judicial policy is a key theme, and economic and comparative analysis of the cases and issues is widely used.
