This new Text, Cases and Materials adopts a modern approach to the law of tort, presenting the key cases and statutes alongside a selection of the most important critical writings on the law. A variety of critical perspectives (economic, leftist, feminist, etc) are explored. The aim throughout is to present tort law as a living entity, responding to contemporary stimuli at each stage of its development. Each section begins with a textual introduction by the authors; more detailed commentary follows the extracts. It will be useful both as a stand-alone coursebook and also as a traditional sourcebook supplementing an independent text. Tort Law is easier to follow and more suitable for use as a stand-alone coursebook than many of its competitors for several reasons. First, it includes a higher proportion of text to extracts; it also incorporates a greater number of extracts from critical writings on the law, thus representing a wider range of critical perspectives than are found in rival sourcebooks

Personal Property law is probably the most important and yet the most neglected and least understood aspect of English law. Historically, Personal Property law was neglected because it was commonly, but misleadingly, regarded as belonging to a number of entirely separate legal categories. The recent growth of specialist literature in this area is indicative of the increasing awareness of the importance of personal property law by practitioners.Personal Property: Text and Materials addresses the problem of the near invisibility of personal property law within the law curriculum by producing an integrated casebook that covers both the underlying philosophy and concepts of personal property law and the impact of evolving business practices on the development of the law. The book is inspired by a determination to produce a concept orientated approach to the study of personal property law, avoiding the specific-contract approach to the subject that has hitherto impoverished the study of the concepts and philosophy of personal property law in the United Kingdom.The book is aimed at undergraduate law students in commercial law courses as well as students in integrated property law courses. By considering all the branches of law that touch commercial transactions such as equity, trusts, property law and restitution, Personal Property: Text and Materials, is also ideal for students studying postgraduate commercial law programs who may or may not have qualifying law degrees.
