About the Authors
  • This three-volume set contains the results of the second and final stage of an AHRC-funded project which aims to examine the nature of legal development in Western Europe since 1850, focusing on liability for fault. By bringing together experts with different disciplinary backgrounds – comparative lawyers and legal historians, all with an understanding of modern tort law in their own systems – and getting them to work collaboratively, the books produce a more nuanced comparative legal history and one which is theoretically better informed. Also available: The six-volume set containing the results of the first stage of this project.

    • Presents a full picture of the development of the law since 1850
    • Legal systems are examined from a comparative and an historical perspective
    • All volumes provide overview chapters that draw out the issues from national reports
