Combining many classics of the tort literature with provocative new materials using a broad range of approaches--including law and economics, law and philosophy, feminist theory, critical legal studies, legal history, comparative law, law and society, and positive political theory--this reader by a noted scholar in the field illuminates the full spectrum of modern thinking about the subject. Brief questions at the conclusion of each reading encourage the student to consider the strengths, weaknesses, and ambiguities of each theory, and how it may apply to a familiar torts problem. Exploring such issues as the role of fault, means of social control, liability at the workplace, and tort reform, this volume is the perfect sourcebook for the study of tort law. This is the second volume in the Interdisciplinary Readers in Law series (Roberta Romano, General Editor). Designed as a collection of supplementary texts for law school courses, the series collects important essays from leading lawyers, economists, political scientists, philosophers, historians, and legal scholars, reflecting the broad range of scholarship that informs contemporary law. Other volumes in the series include Foundations of Corporate Law (Roberta Romano, Editor), Foundations of Administrative Law (Peter Schuck, Editor), and Foundations of Contract Law (Richard Craswell and Alan Schwartz, Editors).
