The principal focus of this book is the law of negligence, strict liability, and no-fault legislation as alternative approaches to compensating the victims of accidental harm and creating optimal incentives for safety. This Edition has restructured the chapter on intentional torts to facilitate its use to start off the course for those instructors desiring to do so. It also includes comprehensive chapters on products liability, damages and insurance, defamation, privacy, and economic torts. Notes and questions following principal cases are designed to supplement students’ knowledge about the subject matter of the case and related areas as well as to encourage them to think critically about judicial opinions and tort policy. This Tenth Edition reflects evolving developments in recent case law and legislative activity, as well as materials and commentary ranging from the current Restatement project on Intentional Torts to continuing tort issues arising from the Internet.
