Torts: Text and Cases is a unique book designed to give students an introduction to the substantive rules of common law torts as well as the leading cases in which those rules have been developed and applied. Professor Daly's hybrid approach draws on the strengths of two different types of textbook – the general introduction and the casebook – to deliver an accessible and comprehensive overview of the subject of torts. Short chapters explaining the core concepts of torts, such as defamation, negligence and vicarious liability, are followed by extracts from key cases which allow students to observe how the concepts are used and found in judicial decisions.
