Review from previous edition: "A winning formula - Horsey and Rackley cut decisively to the primary material that students need to know whilst also providing deep and analytical content."
--Dr James GH Griffin, Senior Lecturer, University of Exeter
"Provides a very good insight into the contextual issues surrounding tort law."
--Shilan Shah-Davis, Senior Lecturer, University of the West of England.
"Lively, accessible, well-pitched; Horsey and Rackley is the best in the market."
--John O'Leary, Senior Lecturer and LLB Course Leader, Anglia Ruskin University
"Tort Law is surprisingly enjoyable to read with complex legal points being distilled into short and manageable sections. It shakes off the airs and graces of other texts by using plain English and is constantly posing interesting points, and counter-points, on this vast area of law.[...] In
particular, excellent features include the 'pause for reflection' and 'counter-point' boxes appearing throughout the text, and the annotated copies of important statutes."
--Student Law Journal
Review 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 and 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 book is ideal for any undergraduate new to tort. Its pedagogical features encourage students to reflect as they learn."
--Dr Rebecca Wong, Senior Lecturer in Law, Nottingham Law School
"I very much like the book's style. It's informative and encourages broader thinking - something lecturers constantly try to do."
--Sarah Flanagan, undergraduate law student, University of Plymouth
