This student text offers a fresh perspective on the law of tort by concentrating on the different interests which are protected by tort and by placing the law of tort in the context in which it operates. This "interest-based" model is designed to help students understand more easily the role and working of tortious liability. "The Modern Law of Tort" begins with an introductory section on the general principles of tortious liability. The author then concentrates on the role of tort in providing protection for particular interests: personal injuries and death; economic interests; and interests in land and other interests, including liberty, privacy and reputation. The kinds of damages which can be suffered are linked with the relevant protection afforded by the law. The law of tort is a fast-moving area and this work takes account of a number of important developments including the debate on additional remedies for infringement of privacy and changes to the approach to the duty care in negligence, with particular reference to the developments of economic loss, misstatement and nervous shock.
