The popularity and consistent use of Advanced Torts is testament to the fact that the most rapidly expanding areas of tort law are now advanced torts subjects - not personal injury or other subjects covered in the basic torts course. This volume is unique in its coverage and breadth. Topics covered include defamation, the rights of privacy and publicity, harm to family relationships, malicious prosecution, interference with common law civil rights, liability for economic loss, interference with contracts, trade secrets, unfair competition, and other business torts.
This coursebook also contains cases from outside the United States. They are included for the same reasons as American cases: their roles as legal precedents and value for instruction purposes. The use of non-American cases and treatises also makes the point that for many subjects, including torts, the law is "common," not American, and cases and literature from other countries with common law legal systems are sources of law and legal analysis for the United States.

In this new edition, the text of all the chapters and sections has been revised to incorporate court decisions and other material published since the first edition was published.The format of the book is the familiar one of principal cases followed by textual notes. Materials emphasize the facts and decisions of reported cases rather than secondary sources. In addition to its use in advanced torts courses, this book can be used in courses and seminars on "Injuries to Relations," "Business Torts," "Defamation and Privacy," and "The Family and Tort Law."
