The Law of Tort is a succinct and lucid introduction to the basic principles of tort. It is an ideal text for undergraduates who wish to acquire a firm grounding in all the important areas of this fast-moving field of law. In this second edition, the continuing retreat from the expansive principles laid down in Anns v. Merton is examined, as are the effects on environmental liability of Cambridge Water Company v. Eastern Counties Leather. Developments in the law relating to the duty of care are explored, with analysis of the House of Lords cases of Alcock v. Chief Constable of South Yorks. (nervous shock), Murphy v. Brentwood D.C. (local authority and builder's liability) and Caparo v. Dickman (negligent misstatement). The impact of the European Convention of Human Rights, the Neill Committee Report and Rantzen v. Mirror Newspaper Group Ltd on the law of defamation, and Lonrho v. Fayed on economic torts are also discussed.
