From the Back Cover:

UNDERSTANDING LAW

A seven-volume series of introductions to the core subjects of law: contract, criminal law, equity and trusts, property, public law, tort and the legal system.

TORT LAW

Tort law is simply the technical name for part of the English system of civil liability. To put this differently, when people turn to the legal system for compensation for some injury which they have suffered, the rules for tort law come into effect. Consequently tort law has to accommodate a wide range of situations, some of which may seem relatively mundane. A careless driver, an accident at work, noisy neighbours, are all material for the tort system. I t can be used to correct police malpractices or protect individuals against the power of the press. Campaigners may turn to tort law to prevent environmental damage. To deal with these very different situations, tort law needs to be versatile and to keep pace with changing social needs.

'Understanding Tort Law' sets out to delineate the way in which the rules of tort law are made and describes their origins in a very different society. The book provides a simple introduction to tort law's complex and confusing rules and technical vocabulary. It also provides a critical view of tort law, suggesting ways in which it could be improved and how it may develop in the future.
