Review

Review(s) from previous edition "Clearly written, allows all students to understand tort while enabling stronger students to think critically and challenge traditional approaches." --Avis Whyte, Senior Research Fellow and Senior Lecturer, Westminster School of Law"Very impressed: the authors explain the complexities clearly without sacrificing depth. An excellent combination of legal analysis and contextual discussion. " --Colm O'Cinneide, Lecturer in Law, University College London"Horsey & Rackley is very good and clearly written; the 'pause for reflection' sections, followed by questions, work extremely well. " --Jose Miola, Senior Lecturer in Law, University of Leicester --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Paperback
A very clear and well laid out textbook. Use of boxes and shading is very well applied to draw attention to specific areas and prevent boredom setting in from simply reading long, breakless chapters.

There is a high level of detail which never becomes overwhelming, and plenty of comparison/contrast within the law.

One of the best aspects is the way the authors have drawn attention to the contemporary debates within Tort law. There is plenty of constructive criticism and the law is set in its policy and historical setting, helping the reader to understand the broader aspects of the law.

End of chapter summaries are clear and concise and reference is provided to further in-depth material and academic debate. The footnotes are also helpful in clearing up small issues.

Overall an excellent introduction to the law of Tort.

I have one specific criticism (which does not detract from the book overall), on page 47 the authors provide a detailed examination of a particular case (X and Y v London Borough of Hounslow). The case was decided relatively recently and presumably made it into the book shortly before it was published. Unfortunately this case has been overruled by the Court of Appeal, so although the discussion in the book is still interesting, the case itself was actually wrongly decided.

Tort law is a fast moving subject and any book is liable to be out of date after a few years - still, the insertion of a case at the time only recently decided at first instance seems a little risky!

Not only does this textbook cover all of the main points in detail, it also has excellent academic commentary throughout, which means fellow LLB Law students don't have to worry about reading journal articles in that much detail- its all here in one textbook!

I used Horsey for my main reading as well as my main revision book.

A 'must-have' for any Tort student!

Format: Paperback
This is a great book! I am a law student and I used this book during my study of the law of Torts and it complemented my course perfectly. The book is really well laid out with very clear and simple language. It provides everything anybody studying Torts on a law degree would need and more.

2 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Jodie on 18 May 2011
Format: Paperback
Unlike many books on the subject, this book is very accessible and easy to read for any first year Law student studying for the LLB. It provides clear concise explanations of the legal issues involved in all the fundamental aspects of Tort Law, including Negligence, Vicarious Liability, Trespass to the Person, Defamation and Nuisance as well as facts of all of the relevant case law on these topics. It makes for very easy reading and all chapters are clearly headed. It was very useful in terms of revision as in the back it includes a number of problem questions which you can test yourself on as preperation for exams. I would strongly recommend it.
