Review quote

"McBride and Bagshaw has now been refined over several editions into being the best textbook on the law of torts available. It combines depth of scholarship with accessibility for the beginner. The reader will be forced to think, and there is no higher praise than that." Professor Robert Stevens, UCL "McBride and Bagshaw is an excellent teaching aid, easy to read, thorough, and it explains the material well. Its high quality analysis is a source of reference for students and academics alike. The authors' views are both challenging and thoughtful." Phillip Morgan, Lecturer in Law, University of York "This edition of McBride and Bagshaw s Tort Law provides a concise and original approach to the law of tort, catering for students at every level. Principles are explained clearly with useful examples as illustration, whilst inclusion of discussion of theoretical perspectives will engage the stronger student. A great textbook." Dr Sarah Brown, Lecturer in Law, University of Leeds "The new McBride and Bagshaw is a scholarly work of distinction and a comprehensive student textbook. It gives a lucid, critical, presentation of the law, attentive to its complexity, without underestimating its capacity for principle." Sandy Steel, Lecturer in Law, King's College London 'By a distance the most intelligent and insightful textbook on tort and the best at getting students to think about and make sense of the law.' Dr Charlie Webb, Lecturer in Law, LSE "The fourth edition of McBride and Bagshaw s Tort Law is wonderful. The scope and depth of the text is impressive. It simultaneously covers areas of tort law that are often neglected by other student-level texts and critically evaluates academic criticisms and interpretations of this law. I will continue to recommend it as the first port of call for anyone looking for a well-written and accessible discussion of English tort law." Associate Professor Jason Neyers, Western University Canada
