P.S.A. Pillai Law of Tort

Abhinandan Malik (Author)

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.
