Studies in American Tort Law is a careful mix of law, policy, ethics, and economics designed for first-year torts courses. Recognizing that torts is a prime battleground for social policy, this book reflects not only the current rules on injury compensation, but also the policy choices underlying those rules.

The text moves from simple concepts and elementary rules to ones that are more complex or elusive. Within a clear doctrinal framework, a range of views is presented, reflecting dominant themes in tort law, such as fault, proportionality, deterrence, internalization of costs, and distribution of losses. These views are explored with special attention to issues at the cutting edge of twenty-first century tort litigation.

The seventh edition reflects the highly dynamic nature of the torts field. The book includes new principal cases, scores of citations to recent opinions and statutes, and comprehensive references to the most recent volumes of the Restatement (Third) of Torts.
