Publisher Comments:

The new edition of this casebook retains the features that made it a success:

- clear, direct text introduces cases and explains important concepts

- a balance of modern and classic torts cases, including Vaughan v. Menlove (on standard of care), Vincent v. Lake Erie Transportation Co. (on doctrine of incomplete privilege), Greenman v. Yuba Power (on product liability)

- appealing, memorable problems based on actual reported cases that reinforce understanding and build analytical skills

- contemporary conception and content with the most current thinking on key issues

- ample background information that places cases and statutes in context

- varied note materials — introductory and transitional notes that encourage close attention to cases and perspective notes that explore a range of viewpoints on tort law

- a comprehensive Teacher's Manual that includes sample syllabi and guidance for structuring 4- and 6-credit courses, detailed suggestions for presenting and preparing cases and materials for class, and answers and analysis to all problems and questions raised in the book

The second edition of this popular casebook

- provides updated material throughout the text

- illuminates the procedural posture of every case

- refreshes and updates case selection in a number of chapters, including those for standards of care, statutory violation, multiple sufficient causes, foreseeability as a proximate cause test, substantial factor as a proximate cause test, assumption of risk, and defamation

- supplies reworked notes and introductory sections, particularly for res ipsa loquitur, duty, and professional standard of care

Basic Tort Law: Cases, Statutes, and Problems, Second Edition, is thoroughly updated while retaining the direct approach that makes it a favorite with students and the proven pedagogy that makes it an essential teaching tool.
