Editorial Reviews

Review

The authors do express the hope that the book will be used as teaching material in universities in order to familiarize future generations of lawyers with each others' legal systems and the inpact of European and international law. In my view, the book fully meets the objectives chosen by the authors. However, the use of this book should not be confined to the law school class rooms. It should find its way to present day legal practice as well, since the book contains a wealth of easily accessible high quality information on the major European tort law systems. In conclusion, this is a very important book of high quality. The authors have contributed greatly to European legal thought on tort law. Professor Dr Mark Wissink Maastricht Journal of European and Comparative Law February 2001 ...the book is beautifully presented,..., and the thousand or so pages of text so printed as to make the book very readable and so most comprehensible....a marvellous book....found the book very difficult to put down, it contains so much that is fascinating. The authors express the hope that the book will be used as teaching material in universities and other institutions throughout Europe. There can be no doubt that it will provide the most excellent material for that purpose, giving direct access to primary sources as well as providing, in the comparative overview which closes each section, a detached and scholarly assessment. But I very much hope that, in the United Kingdom at least, the legal profession, both the judges and the practising lawyers, will also take full advantage of the book to view their own law of torts in a comparative context and so to assist in its informed development. With books like this casebook,..., the cause of comparative law in this field has been immeasurably advanced, to the benefit of all legal systems in Europe - and indeed throughout the world Robert Goff International and Comparative Law Quarterly February 2001 Walter van Gerven, Jeremy Lever QC, and Pierre Larouche effectively collaborate to present the most complete version of the Casebook on Tort Law available to the general public today. Tort Law is a core addition for any professional or law school reference collection. The Review Editor Wisconsin Bookwatch June 2002

This is probably one of the best comparative law of torts books ever written. I bought a used copy and it looks like brand new. I am very happy with my purchase.
