Description
Now in its eleventh edition, Street on Torts has long been renowned for its dear and wide-ranging coverage of the law of torts. It clearly explains how torts actually work and the social purposes behind them. The book covers the whole range of torts, including, particularly, negligence, defamation, trespass, the economic torts, nuisance and the growing area of breach of confidence/privacy.
John Murphy continues to build upon the work of the original author, Harry Street, retaining the same basic structure, reflecting the range and hierarchy of interests protected by tort law.
The new edition has been substantially reworked, especially in the areas of the duty of care in negligence, causation, product liability, vicarious liability, defamation, occupiers' liability and the economic torts. This rewriting and reorganisation within chapters has been necessitated by a host of significant decisions since the last edition in 1999. The growing significance of the Human Rights Act 1998 throughout the whole of tort law - but especially in relation to the protection of privacy, defamation and nuisance - is also fully covered in this eleventh edition.
Street on Torts is justifiably one of the most highly regarded works available
