This new Text, Cases and Materials adopts a modern approach to the law of tort, presenting the key cases and statutes alongside a selection of the most important critical writings on the law. A variety of critical perspectives (economic, leftist, feminist, etc) are explored. The aim throughout is to present tort law as a living entity, responding to contemporary stimuli at each stage of its development. Each section begins with a textual introduction by the authors; more detailed commentary follows the extracts. It will be useful both as a stand-alone coursebook and also as a traditional sourcebook supplementing an independent text. Tort Law is easier to follow and more suitable for use as a stand-alone coursebook than many of its competitors for several reasons. First, it includes a higher proportion of text to extracts; it also incorporates a greater number of extracts from critical writings on the law, thus representing a wider range of critical perspectives than are found in rival sourcebooks

Little attention has been paid to the development of Australian private law throughout the first half of the twentieth century. Using the law of tort as an example, Mark Lunney argues that Australian contributions to common law development need to be viewed in the context of the British race patriotism that characterised the intellectual and cultural milieu of Australian legal practitioners. Using not only primary legal materials but also newspapers and other secondary sources, he traces Australian developments to what Australian lawyers viewed as British common law. The interaction between formal legal doctrine and the wider Australian contexts in which that doctrine applied provided considerable opportunities for nuanced innovation in both the legal rules themselves and in their application. This book will be of interest to both lawyers and historians keen to see how notions of Australian identity have contributed to the development of an Australian law.

The Fourth Edition of this unique casebook has been dramatically revised. This new edition presents the important cases, statutes, empirical data, and competing tort theories in a problems-oriented format that is designed to help students acquire a sophisticated understanding of tort law through active learning. As before, the text includes a large number of problems Now, however, the Problems, updated and considerably expanded, are organized in Sets at the end of each substantive chapter. This extensively re-written and reorganized edition includes the classic common law torts cases, but is updated throughout with teachable, cutting-edge decisions that will demand student interest and hold their attention. Particular care has been to take account of the most recent commentaries on tort law, such as the growing importance of the Restatement (Third) of Torts. Chapter One is unique among American torts casebooks in its examination of how the dominant twenty-first century tort theories influence judicial decisionmaking and scholarship. That chapter explains six key perspectives on tort law: • Law and Economics; • Corrective Justice; • Critical Race Theory; • Critical Feminism; • Pragmatism; and • Social Justice Chapter One references the famous McDonald's hot coffee litigation as a case study to illustrate these perspectives in action. Subsequent chapters continue to work through that case study and continually reference the perspectives to explain or challenge the decided cases. The authors seek to provide students with innovative cases and problems, empowering them with practical skills. By exposing students to the most important contemporary tort law theories, the Fourth Edition of this casebook encourages students to go beyond passively memorizing case holdings and the voyeuristic experience of reading appellate opinions and truly gain perspectives on tort law.
