DESCRIPTION

Tried and tested by generations of students, Street on Torts can be trusted to provide a clear and accurate explanation of tort law. In this edition, John Murphy has thoroughly rewritten the book to bring a fresh and readable style to this classic text. Students new to tort law can read treet chapter by chapter as they work through their lectures: the book has been substantially restructured to map closely to a typical undergraduate law course and provides all the essential material in one volume. Street's broad coverage has been maintained to ensure it appeals to a wide range of institutions as a main course text. This edition provides a strong anaylsis of case law, explaining how torts actually work and examining the social purposes behind them. The importance of the Human Rights Act is traced thoughout the book, and a new chapter has been included on the misuse of private information to reflect this rapidly developing area of the law. Further reading sections have been added to the end of each chapter.Online Resource Centre The twelfth edition of Street on Torts is accompanied by an Online Resource Centre providing twice-yearly updates, giving students easy access to key developments in the law.
