The Torts Process skillfully employs a problem approach that challenges students understanding by exploring both theoretical and real-life situations. The clear, balanced presentation enables students to comprehend the overarching structure and organization of Tort law.

The Eighth Edition has thoroughly reviewed and updated cases and secondary sources, with recent and compelling cases substituted throughout. The text now incorporates the finalized Restatement (Third) of Torts: Liability for Physical and Emotional Harm. Expanded coverage of Tort theory includes corrective justice and the related civil recourse school of thought, complementing the law and economic theory perspective that has been a feature of the book since its inception. Notes on legal ethics and law and economics are completely revised. Problems have been refreshed and many new problems have been added. New material on Global Dimensions of Tort Law in Chapter 15 reflects the fact that the Supreme Court may determine that companies whose gas emissions contribute to climate change may be held liable under the federal common law of public nuisance. New Supreme Court cases have been added in the areas of preemption and punitive damages, for example Snyder v. Phelps, concerning constitutional limitations on intentional infliction of emotional distress liability. In addition, the Eighth Edition discusses the BP Oil Spill Fund in the chapter on alternative compensation mechanisms.
