Summary:Law students can master existing Tort doctrine from a careful reading of their casebooks. But many would welcome a "wider view." This book helps readers see the forest and not just the trees. Its four parts (and seventeen chapters) present: ideological, political, and historical perspectives on Torts; comparative law insights from other countries; alternative policy solutions to contemporary social problems not well handled by Torts; and explanations of how unduly complex Tort doctrines can be improved by being simplified. This book offers a unique set of supplemental readings for the 1L Torts course or for a seminar on Sugarman on Torts. - publisher
