This wide-ranging and well-balanced overview of the law of torts in Australia examines the various trespass actions in detail as well as nuisance, defamation and the economic torts. The chapters on negligence focus on the civil liability legislation that has been enacted throughout Australia, particularly in respect of the standard of care and breach of duty, causation and scope of liability, defences and assessment of damages for personal injury. The second edition has been thoroughly revised to contain all relevant new developments.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
