Description

This revised edition takes into account the many developments in tort since it was first published in 1993. It challenges the assumption in law education that tort is "objective", "apolitical" and "neutral", and sets out to reveal that it is imbued with politics. The authors argue that the system of tort is usually hidden from students and most lawyers, and that this is unacceptable because the system is arbitrary, and its underlying ideology is callous. The book is controversial and should provide law students, lawyers and others with arguments to challenge the prevailing orthodoxy. The chapters on negligence, accident, compensation, nuisance and feminist protection have all been substantially rewritten to take account of the expanding case-law and recent political developments. This revised edition takes into account the many developments in tort since it was first published in 1993. It challenges the assumption in law education that tort is "objective", "apolitical" and "neutral", and sets out to reveal that it is imbued with politics.
