Drawing on the most intellectually interesting contributions to literature, the new edition continues to offer a balance between classic articles by Oliver Wendell Holmes, Richard A. Posner, and Guido Calabresi, and contemporary selections focusing on new perspectives. The new perspectives include: institutional ('Expanding the Negligence Concept: Retreat from the Rule of Law' by James A. Henderson, Jr.) feminist ('Women, Mothers, and the Law of Fright' by Martha Chamallas with Linda K. Kerber) critical ('A Critique of Torts' by Richard L. Abel)
The Fourth Edition also features a new chapter covering damages. Other changes include adding the role of liability insurance in tort litigation to the final chapter on no-fault alternatives to the present system.
PERSPECTIVES ON TORT LAW, Fourth Edition, opens with four chapters on the rationale, history, process, and doctrine of tort law. Five subsequent chapters focus on the continuing process of reevaluation and change, including historical, moral, economic, and other perspectives.
