The book is a true student textbook that combines a strong theoretical foundation with a practical applied approach. A clear, concise yet rigorous introduction to the general principles of delictual law. It has been revised and updated, the second edition focuses more strongly on problemsolving application. The text supports learning and the development of independent academic skills through various learning features which bring an applied, critical and reflective approach to the content. The structure of the book reflects the logical and systematic process of enquiry that is followed when assessing or preparing for a delictual matter, and it reflects clearly the distinctions between the Aquilian action, Germanic action and Actio iniuriarum. It has been pedagogically developed as alearning resource for students with varying backgrounds and skills levels and is supported by ancillary teaching materials which assist in teaching and learning.
The authors are senior, well-respected experts in the field. Professor Midgley is Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Research) at University of Fort Hare.
