Street on Torts provides a wide-ranging overview of tort law, explaining how torts actually work and examining the social purposes behind them. The book offers students a contextual and thought-provoking account of tort law by ensuring students are given the 'bigger picture' surrounding the
main torts discussed in the book.

In this edition, John Murphy has rewritten the book to bring a fresh and lively style to this classic text while maintaining a strong commitment to the explanation and analysis of case law and statutes. The book has also been substantially restructured to ensure that it maps closely to a typical
undergraduate law course and can be used as a main course text. The book's distinctive broad coverage has been maintained to ensure it will appeal to a wide range of courses.

Street on Torts traces the growing importance of the Human Rights Act throughout the book, and a new chapter has been included on privacy and confidentiality to reflect this rapidly developing area of the law.
