Tort law remains a dynamic field, subject to constant refinement and rethinking. The Ninth Edition reflects these evolving developments in recent case law and legislative activity, as well as commentary ranging from the almost-completed Third Restatement of Torts: Liability for Physical & Emotional Harm to emerging tort issues arising from the Internet. 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 to safety. This leading casebook covers all major aspects of tort law with expertly edited cases, and original text. It also includes comprehensive chapters on intentional harm, damages and insurance, defamation, privacy, and economic torts.
