This volume represents an in-depth study of a crucial question of tort law: When is liability based on fault and when does it give way to the need to impose strict liability? Continental in scope and yet remarkably detailed in its treatment of individual countries, the present work offers an unequalled overview of the subject and its many controversies. In light of 12 up-to-date national reports and an unprecedented synthesis, it is an indispensable guide to law reformers, practitioners and scholars in Europe, the United States and elsewhere.
