This six-volume set contains the results of the first stage of an AHRC-funded project which aims to examine the nature of legal development in Western Europe since 1850, focusing on liability for fault.

By bringing together experts with different disciplinary backgrounds - comparative lawyers and legal historians, all with an understanding of modern tort law in their own systems - and getting them to work collaboratively, the books produce a more nuanced comparative legal history, and one which is theoretically better informed.

  • Presents a full picture of the development of the law since 1850
  • Legal systems are examined from a comparative and an historical perspective
  • All volumes provide overview chapters that draw out the issues from national reports
The Six Volumes are:-
  • Volume 1. The Development of Product Liability
  • Volume 2. The Development of Liability between Neighbours
  • Volume 3. The Development of Medical Liability
  • Volume 4. The Development of Liability in Relation to Technological Change
  • Volume 5. The Development of Traffic Liability
  • Volume 6. The Development and Making of Legal Doctrine
