Torts: Commentary and Materials is one of the leading torts casebooks in Australia. The text provides expert commentary on carefully selected cases and materials from each core area of tort law. Considerable emphasis is placed on the choice of foundational cases as well as on the use of topical examples and questions.

The eleventh edition has been substantially rewritten and reworked to streamline and structure content to reflect the subject as taught in the majority of Australian universities, in particular to reflect the modern role of tort within legal structures, including constitutional torts and torts protecting human rights. Each chapter has been carefully revised to increase clarity. The introductory context chapter has been revised to further emphasise the theoretical basis of liability in torts and the Part covering intentional torts has been substantially revised and restructured to better reflect the status of particular torts and their relationship to other torts. It includes modern and illustrative examples and questions designed to fully engage and provoke critical analysis. The chapters on duty of care have been revised to better reflect the modern forms of argument used in various categories of negligence, making the work more accessible to students without sacrificing the complexity and detail of this important area of law.
