This volume provides a concise and readable analysis of British tort law. Presenting the rules of tort against the background of other parallel systems of compensation, Dias and Markesinis explore the broad policy factors that lie behind the rules, and supplement their analyses with biographical references and reproductions of extracts from the most relevant Acts of Parliament.
