Summary/Abstract "In the light of twelve reports from different European jurisdictions, the present volume offers case studies covering among others liability of parents, of employers, of property owners, medical liability, product liability, and motorist liability. Achieving an unprecedented synthesis, this book should be of interest not only to those who work on European law reform projects, but also to those who practice private tort law and seek a better understanding of the foundations of liability, both on a national and an international level."--BOOK JACKET
