The book Tort Law: Text, Cases, and Materials is written by Jenny Steele. In previous editions of this book, I stated that my first ambition was to guide students through the subject by explaining the current state of the law as clearly as possible. The second was to explore the interesting uncertainties and sometimes fundamental disagreements that remain. These ambitions remain at the heart of this third edition, which still aims to combine the best features of a textbook and a Cases and Materials book in a single volume, with a greater emphasis on explaining what is normally found. in any of them. It is true that the text does not always avoid taking sides as might be traditional for collections of cases and materials, but it is hoped that the text and materials will be woven into a coherent and readable account, whose underlying philosophy is that clarity. and the candor of the exposition will ultimately equip students to tackle difficult questions independently.
The views presented here are easily seen as a starting point, from which students can develop in their own direction. While sometimes clarity is best achieved with concise treatment, this is not always the case. As with all legal issues, some of the most important questions of principle are also questions of detail. This text does not throw a veil over matters of detail of this kind but rather seeks to follow them as far as necessary.
