Overview:

This excellent work has been popular amongst the academic community for almost fifty-four years now. It is today a prescribed text in most law school.

This book is scrupulously researched and well written. It is a meritorious contribution to the study of law of torts. Even given the fairly frequent references to foreign jurisprudence, this work remains predominantly Indian both in emphasis and content. It incorporates all the leading decisions in Tort Law. The learned revising author, Dr. Avtar Singh has now thoroughly updated the work and added fresh material throughout the book on 'Law of Statutory Compensation' and a fresh chapter has been added on Consumer Protection. Tort Law is fast developing in India and the author has successfully analysed the modern thinking in the judgments of our Indian Courts. An important case in points is the judgment of the Supreme Court in M.C. Mehta v. Union of India (1987) 1 SCC 395, which the author has discussed in length. The language and style of the author render the book engaging and make the subject interesting. The book has an exhaustive subject index for easy reference. The book is of immense use not only to students of law but also to the practicing lawyers. It is a valuable addition to any law library.

Reviews

  • Delhi Law Review:
    The book, besides discussing the general principles of tortious liability, capacity of parties and specific torts which one may come across in every book on torts, has separate chapters on foreign torts, right of privacy and injury to servitudes, thus giving new dimensions to the subject of torts. This book is scrupulously researched and well written. It is a meritorious contribution to the study of law of torts. It is highly recommended to all concerned as a valuable treatise on the subject and a valuable addition to the existing literature.
  • MALAYA LAW REVIEW ::
    The book is extensive in scope and the author evinces a tangible fascination for his subject. Even given the fairly frequent references to foreign jurisprudence, this work remains predominantly Indian both in emphasis and content, and the sheer volume of Indian case law examined means that the book must prove valuable to anyone requiring an Indian perspective on tort law.
  • Gujarat Law Reporter :
    ...he (the author) discussed all the important subjects in this book which we cannot find in any other book on the subject. The cases on each and every subject have been cited. Important old cases are given due place. The book is useful to the students of law upto LL.M and also to the Junior advocates who are entering into the Bar.
  • COCHIN UNIVERSITY LAW REVIEW:
    The book has an exhaustive subject index for easy reference. The book is of immense use not only to students of law but also to the practising lawyers. It is a valuable addition to any law library.
