The Fifth Edition of Cases and Materials on the Law of Torts continues the tradition of using, as much as possible, minimally edited cases so that the book can serve as a vehicle for teaching first-year students the essential techniques of case analysis and legal method. The entire book has been modified to accommodate the many developments in the law of torts since the Fourth Edition was published in 2004. For example, the basic chapters on negligence and causation recognize and discuss the now finally adopted Restatement (Third) of Torts: Liability for Physical & Emotional Harm and the recent case law expanding liability for loss of a chance. The duty section has also undergone a major overhaul to reflect the conceptual framework by which courts think about duty and to elucidate the pervasive role of foreseeability in courts' duty decisions. The Materials on Product's Liability capture the many recent developments in that area; and the materials on dignitary harms reflect the increasing interaction between tort law and constitutional law as well as the expanding potential reach of international human rights conventions. Finally the Fifth Edition retains its comprehensive coverage of the entire field of torts so as to give instructors, all of whom are having to accommodate a curriculum that has cut back on the number of credit hours assigned to torts, the widest possible choice of subjects on which they may wish to concentrate in the limited time they have available.

This text organizes cases over four periods: a 25-year period from 1890 to 1914, in which most of today's issues were foreshadowed; a 25-year period from 1915 to 1939, in which the 'rule of reason' forced courts to investigate the actual consequences of business practices; a 35-year period from 1940 to 1975, in which the per se rule and industry concentration provided the predominant models for analysis; and the modern period of now almost 40 years, which is a synthesis of the second and third periods. The new Fifth Edition retains enough of the first three periods to provide important intellectual and economic context, but it expands upon, even more fully, the recent developments of antitrust policy. All major Supreme Court authority is covered, including the 2013 Actavis 'reverse payments' and Phoebe Putney 'hospital regulation' cases, as well as the 2010 Merger Guidelines and developments in lower court treatment of tying, bundled pricing and mergers.

Since the first publication of Modern Constitutional Law a third of a century ago, it has continued to be one of the best sellers in a very competitive market. Over the years, many law professors have adopted this user-friendly casebook - which is no surprise, given the rave reviews that this book has enjoyed. For example, Professor Thomas E. Baker stated that he has "been so loyal to the Rotunda brand name over the years," because it "remarkabl[y]" manages "to include all the important cases yet preserves a fuller set of opinions to guarantee 'thoughtful classroom discussion'." This Eleventh Edition incorporates the many changes in Constitutional law, such as new limits on the Commerce Clause and Spending Power, the Second Amendment, expanded Free Speech protections, and new limits on affirmative action, the President's executive power, and federal power to enforce voting rights. In addition to the 11th Edition Standard Version, Rotunda now offers an Abridged Edition, particularly appropriate for those professors offering a shorter course. This abridged version covers most of topics of the expanded version but does not include topics that a shorter course would not normally include.
