Abstract

Allan Beever’s latest book, A Theory of Tort Liability, builds on his previous major theoretical works regarding tort law, those being Rediscovering the Law of Negligence, and The Law of Private Nuisance. In the same vein as his earlier projects, Beever defends a rights-based conception of tort law. His ultimate concern in A Theory of Tort Liability is to explain 'how [the] rights [that underpin tort law] relate to each other and ground a systematic form of liability'.

Keywords: Tort; legal theory
