    Overview

    This newly revised book draw on the expertise of its authors, the reporters for the Restatement (Third) of Torts: Products Liability, to provide a solid introduction in a compact format.

    In addition to its outstanding authorship, Product Liability: Problems and Process, Fifth Edition, offers:

  • Full integrations of the Restatement rules and comments in the text.
  • A problem-based approach that applies the law to real life situations.
  • A student friendly mix of cases, notes, and problems to introduce black letter law and its underlying policies.
  • A manageable length without sacrificing important coverage.

    Changes for the Fifth Edition respond to developments in the field:

  • Author's Dialogues — informal, highly engaging discussions and debates between the authors that raise interesting and provocative points about important issues.
  • Material from the Restatement, General Principles, incorporated in the coverage of proximate cause.
  • Expanded treatment of design defects relocated to Chapter 4, with discussion of special problems of proof of defect.
  • A separate chapter on Federal Preemption.
  • New cases, including Speller v. Sears, Roebuck, Laidlaw v. Hariton, Rider v. Sandoz Pharmaceuticals, D'Amario v. Ford Motor Company, and Metro-North Commuter R.R. v. Buuckley.
  • New hypotheticals and problems

    Unmatched in authority, quality, and currency, Products Liability: Problems and Process, Fifth Edition, deserves your careful consideration for adoption.
