With government now having assumed an important role in most areas of economic and social life, issues relating to potential legal liability for wrongful or negligent activity have taken on increasing importance.
When things go wrong, whether it involves matters as diverse as problems with the blood supply, with unsafe drinking water, or the failure of a major financial institution, those who suffer loss inevitably look to whether their losses can be traced back to government or regulatory failure.
This book is a comprehensively revised edition of the leading text in the field of government liability. Each of the chapters of the previous edition has been completely rewritten to take account of the numerous significant developments in the field that have taken place in the 11 years since the last edition was published. In addition, an entirely new chapter on procedure has been added.
