Description - The German Law of Torts by Sir Basil S. Markesinis
This fourth edition of this work, substantially re-written and systematically updated, contains over 150 leading judgments, most translated in their entirety, along with references to over 2000 other decisions from Germany and the common law world. While the book should be a suitable tool for teaching comparative torts and comparative methodology, the fact that it has been extensively rewritten and enlarged should also makes it a useful source of inspiration for those with a professional interest in tort litigation and tort reform. Topics discussed include economic loss, psychiatric injury, wrongful birth, life and sterilisation cases, products liability, traffic accidents, accidents at work, environmental liability and compensation for personal injuries and death.
