Tort law is a subject of primary importance in the study and practice of common law in the Caribbean. This work is now well established as the leading text on tort law in the region, and the fourth edition incorporates developments in law and legal thinking, including recent case law concerning defamation, privacy and vicarious liability.

The chapters on employer's liability and damages have been extensively revised to take account of changes to the law, while throughout the book extracts of key cases have been more thoroughly integrated into the text in order to help students grasp the salient points. Although conceived primarily as a text for the LLB degree courses in Caribbean universities, this book is also essential reading for students preparing for the CAPE Law examinations and the various paralegal courses in the region.

Legal practitioners will find the book useful as a work of ready reference, and it will also be of interest to those business executives, industrialists, insurance agents and journalists who require some knowledge of this most important area of the law.
