We’ve just received word of a rave review for Exploring Tort Law (Cambridge University Press, 2005), a collection of essays edited by SCU School of Law visiting professor, M. Stuart Madden. (Professor Madden’s contribution is a chapter entitled "Tort Law Through Time and Culture: Themes of Economic Efficiency.") The essays that appear in Exploring Tort Law are based on papers presented at a November 2003 Pace University School of Law colloquium, "The Future of Torts." The review by Michael Rustad and Thomas Lambert notes that "it is rare to see conference papers morph into an instant classic of original scholarship." In Rustad and Lambert’s view, Exploring Tort Law "represents some of the best modern tort original scholarship." Rustad and Lambert describe Professor Madden’s essay as an "exquisitely written" study of tort law in ancient civilizations, which "unveil[s] a treasure trove of concepts prefiguring tort law in the ancient law." Rustad and Lambert’s review will appear in a forthcoming issue of the Bimonthly Review of Law Books. Exploring Tort Law is available at Heafey Law Library.
