Product Description

Studies in American Tort Law is a careful mix of law, policy, ethics, and economics designed for first-year torts courses. Recognizing that torts is a prime battleground for social policy, this book seeks to reflect not only the current rules on injury compensation, but also the policy choices underlying those rules.

The text moves from simple concepts and elementary rules to ones that are more complex or elusive. Within a clear, doctrinal framework, a range of views is presented, reflecting dominant themes in tort law, such as fault, proportionality, deterrence, internationalization of costs, and distribution of losses. These views are explored with special attention to issues at the cutting-edge of 21st century tort litigation.

The fifth edition reflects the highly dynamic nature of the torts field. The book includes thirty-one new principal cases, hundreds of citations to recent opinions and statutes, and comprehensive references to the Restatement (Third) of Torts.
