This book is the first in a series of essay collections on defences in private law. The series offers a systematic treatment of defences as a connected field.

Contributions from some of the world's pre-eminent jurists and scholars provide insights from several common law jurisdictions. The present collection explores the links between tort law defences on a theoretical level, and examines the nature and scope of individual defences. It will be of value to academics and practitioners alike.
