Editorial Reviews

Review


"This book is a thoughtful and accurate resource for Torts students, full of helpful examples and brief discussions of classic cases. Goldberg and Zipursky lay out the principles of tort law clearly, but without oversimplification."
--Christina Brooks Whitman
Francis A. Allen Collegiate Professor of Law, University of Michigan Law School


"This is a remarkably accessible and sophisticated guide to the subject of torts. Goldberg and Zipursky's understanding of the law is wide and deep, and their book is a lucid presentation of both the basics and the complexities of the field. Students struggling to master torts for the first time will have both the forest and the trees brought into focus."
--Gregory C. Keating
William T. Dalessi Professor of Law and Philosophy, University of Southern California Gould School of Law


About the Author

John C. P. Goldberg, a professor at Harvard Law School, is a co-author of "Tort Law: Responsibilities and Redress" (Aspen Press), a casebook now in its second edition. He has published more than 30 scholarly articles and essays on torts in leading law journals. He also serves on the editorial board of Legal Theory and is co-Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Tort Law. Prior to joining the Harvard faculty, he spent thirteen years as a member of the Vanderbilt University Law School faculty, where he served as Associate Dean for Research. At Vanderbilt, Goldberg received four teaching prizes, each for a different subject: Advanced Torts/Philosophy of Law, Torts, Contracts and Civil Procedure. Active in the American Law Institute's consultative group for the Third Restatement of Torts, he is this year the president of the Torts and Compensation Systems section of the Association of American Law Schools. After receiving an M. Phil. in Politics from Oxford University, and M.A. from Princeton University and a J.D. from New York University, Goldberg clerked for District Judge Jack Weinstein of the Eastern District of New York and for Supreme Court Justice Byron White. He practiced law in Boston before joining the Vanderbilt faculty. Benjamin C. Zipursky is James H. Quinn '49 Chair in Legal Ethics and Professor of Law at Fordham University School of Law, where he served as Associate Dean for Academic Affairs from 2001-03. He has taught as a Visiting Professor at Columbia Law School, Harvard Law School and Vanderbilt Law School, has lectured widely in the United States and abroad, and has been a frequent commentator in the news media on issues related to mass torts and pharmaceutical liability. Professor Zipursky is a leading scholar in torts, tort theory, legal ethics, and jurisprudence, and has published more than forty articles and book chapters on subjects ranging from punitive damages
