An exhaustive account of the modern law of Delict in a historical and comparative context.

  • Covers negligence, injuries to specific interests (such as defamation and assault), statutory liability, and defences and remedies
  • Includes an introductory section that sets out the historical foundations for the modern law, and explains the principles common to all areas of liability
  • Essential reading at all levels in Scottish law schools (undergraduate, taught and research postgraduates, and academics) and for the Scottish legal profession: solicitors, advocates and in-house lawyers
  • Cross-referenced throughout for easy navigation

In this important book, Elspeth Reid presents an integrated treatment of the law of Delict in Scotland. Alongside its focus upon the Scots sources, where appropriate it also gives full consideration to case law and commentary from other jurisdictions, especially England and Wales.
