Overview

The explosive economic development in China over the last three decades has created social challenges unprecedented in the country's history.In response, China has overhauled its existing tort laws and even created new tort laws. By exploring its principles, theories and history, this book provides international readers a fresh outlook on China's tort law system.Granted that some concepts or theories in China's modern tort laws were "borrowed" from the west, the principles behind them can nevertheless often find their roots in ancient Chinese philosophies, concepts or even laws.This book also uses real cases to explain the courts' application of China's tort laws and the meaning of the corresponding statutes.
