The Wrongs of Tort
Law and Social Theory
This book challenges the assumption in law education that tort is 'objective', 'neutral' and 'apolitical', and reveals how it is imbued with politics.
The authors argue that the system of tort is usually hidden from students and lawyers, and that this is unacceptable because the system is arbitrary, and its underlying ideology callous. This controversial book challenges the prevailing orthodoxy, and continues to shed light on the dusty annals of traditional tort doctrine.
This new edition has been thoroughly updated to take account of the many new developments since its original publication - without losing any of the spirit or vigour of the original text.
