While the book remains an ideal tool for teaching comparative torts and comparative methodology, the fact that it has been extensively rewritten and enlarged now also makes it an indispensable 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.
