Liability of the Crown, 4th Edition

Availability: In Stock

This is the 40th anniversary edition of the Liability of the Crown.

With the government assuming an important role in most areas of economic and social life, issues relating to potential legal liability for wrongful or negligent activity have taken on increasing importance.

When things go wrong, whether it involves matters as diverse as problems with the blood supply, with unsafe drinking water, or the failure of a major financial institution, those who suffer loss inevitably look to whether their losses can be traced back to government or regulatory failure. Liability of the Crown, Fourth Edition is a comprehensively revised 40th anniversary edition of the leading text in the field of government liability. Each chapter of this seminal work has been completely rewritten to take account of the numerous significant developments in the field that have taken place since the last edition was published.

In addition, Wade K. Wright has joined expert authors Peter W. Hogg Q.C. and Patrick J. Monahan for this leading text. This edition includes new chapters on restitution, taking (expropriation), trust, estoppel, and Crown as a creditor as well as a helpful concluding chapter, which draws together a coherent thesis for the book.
