Providing a detailed overview of the law of nuisance this book addresses contentious issues such as the distinction between the rule in Rylands v Fletcher and the law of private nuisance; the law that excludes personal injuries from the remit of nuisance, and the relationship between publicand private nuisance. The book also considers statutory nuisance and the extent to which it can be seen to exceed private and public nuisances as well as utility of nuisance as an environmental tort. This book provides the most up-to-date and comprehensive treatment of the law of nuisance, drillingdown to distinctions between these different types of nuisance as well as examining in detail the overlaps between them.
John Murphy is a reader at the law school at the University of Manchester and specialises in the field of tort law. He is one of the editors of the leading practitioner work on tort "Clerk and Lindsell on Torts."
