Summary
Independent of criminal or contract law, Tort law provides individuals and groups with redress for injury to every dimension of life from physical injury, to property damage, to personal insult. Over past decades no body of law within the civil justice system has experienced greater ferment than the law of Torts. In the US, state courts, federal courts, and the Supreme Court have all been active in the development of Tort policy. This edited collection comprises scholarship from many of today's most influential contributors regarding Torts and Compensation Systems scholarship. Topics include an investigation of the original stimuli for tort-type norms from ancient times onwards, a provocative analysis of five tort landmarks from MacPherson v. Buick Motor Co. to United States v. Carroll Towing Co, and a frank assessment of the limitations of torts within broader compensation systems goals.--
