Book Description

'Coherently brings together many of the arguments that the left has pressed against tort law' Cambridge Law Journal

'Its great strength lies in its uncompromising critique of the traditional textbook analyses of tort doctrine as a logical, neutral and inevitable development of peculiarly legal categories' Modern Law Review

This new edition of The Wrongs of Tort has been thoroughly updated to take account of the many new developments since its original publication in 1993 - without losing any of the spirit or vigour of the original text. It challenges the assumption in law education that tort is ‘objective’, ‘neutral’ and ‘apolitical‘, and reveals how it is imbued with politics. The authors argue that the system of tort is usually hidden from students and lawyers, and that this is unacceptable because the system is arbitrary, and its underlying ideology callous. This controversial book challenges the prevailing orthodoxy, and continues to shed light on the dusty annals of traditional tort doctrine.
