Product Overview

Tortlaw determines when a person may be held legally responsible for wrongfully injuring another; it is the law of civil wrongs in The Oxford introductions to U.S. Law: Torts, renowned scholars John C.P. Goldberg and Benjamin C. Zipursky provide an accessible and comprehensive account of tort law suitable for law students and others interested in the subject.

While clearly explaining basic concepts such as duty, intent, negligence, proximate cause, and punitive damages, this volume also places tort in its broader historical and political context. Through careful and lucid analysis of tort law's most famous cases, it illuminates tort's theoretical foundations and future directions.

"This book is a thoughtful and accurate resource for Torts students, full of helpful examples and brief discussions of classic cases. Goldberg and Zipursky lay out the principles of tort law clearly, but without oversimplification."

Christina Brooks Whitman, Francis A. Allen Collegiate Professor of Law, University of Michigan Law School

"This is a remarkably accessible and sophisticated guide to the subject of torts. Goldberg and Zipursky's understanding of the law is wide and deep, and their book is a lucid presentation of both the basics and the complexities of the field. Students struggling to master torts for the first time will have both the forest and the trees brought into focus."

Gregory C. Keating, William T. Dalessi Professor of Law and Philosophy, University of Southern California Gould School of Law
