This pioneering Handbook contains specially-commissioned chapters on tort law from leading experts in the field.

Scholars, students, legal practitioners, regulators, and judges with an interest in tort law, litigation, damages, and reform will find this seminal Handbook an invaluable addition to their libraries.
