Tort Law: The Essentials is part of Aspen's new Essentials Series, which takes a "forest rather than the trees" approach by first exposing students to the subject as a whole before delving deeply into individual legal rules. This insightful paperback concentrates on the fundamentals and uses an informal, personal style to explain the essential concepts and doctrines of tort law. Suitable for use with any casebook, this resource will help students recognize and understand how common themes enhance their ability to comprehend doctrinal issues.
