Baker: Tort continues to provide a succinct but thorough introduction to the law of tort, ideal for students on modular courses. Clear and stimulating, it sets out the basic rules and explores the many difficulties which this core subject presents to students. In this sixth edition, developments in the law of negligence are explored via the decisions in White v. Jones and Spring v. Guardian Assurance. Page v. Smith and Hunt v. Severs illustrate new aspects of the law's approach to damages. Other key decisions examined include, Cambridge Water Company v. Eastern Counties Leather (nuisance) and Henderson v. Merrett Syndicates (concurrent liability).
