Modern Tort Law by V. H. Harpwood

Book Description

Modern Tort Law is a comprehensive, accessible and up-to-date introduction to the law of torts. Now in its seventh edition, Vivienne Harpwood's popular, student-friendly text explains the principles of all aspects of tort law in a lively and thought-provoking manner. The broad coverage of modern tort law makes this an ideal textbook for any undergraduate tort law course. Students are encouraged to understand and apply the principles of tort law effectively throughout and particular attention is paid to the context within which the law is evolving, making these topics both accessible and enjoyable. This seventh edition has been revised and updated to take into account developments since publication of the previous edition including in the areas of privacy, negligence, personal injury and defamation. Human Rights issues are integrated throughout the text rather than treating the topic in isolation, in line with the way the subject is commonly taught. Now more accessible and student-friendly, it includes: * advice on further reading at the end of each chapter which is intended to point students towards sources of further study and critical debate * new chapter introductions, rewritten to reflect learning outcomes. Modern Tort Law is now supported by a Companion Website which offers lecturer resources available to adopters of the book, including 'think points' designed to encourage reflection and debate and PowerPoints of diagrams and flowcharts contained within the text. A dedicated student section also offers weblinks, a guide to key Tort law cases, a flashcard glossary and a test bank of multiple choice questions.

Medicine, Malpractice and Misapprehensions by V. H. Harpwood Medicine, Malpractice and Misapprehensions, Paperback (December 2007)

There is evidence that medical mistakes and mishaps occur in significant numbers every year. This book examines the uncertainty and some of the myths surrounding errors and claims in healthcare, and places the arguments surrounding the so-called compensation culture on a stronger statistical, and hence epistemological basis.
