Ward Farnsworth and Mark F. Grady's Torts: Cases and Questions is an ingenious new casebook that uses pairs and clusters of cases to build students' analytical skills as they master the fundamentals of tort law. This refreshing new approach is designed for classroom effectiveness: Pairs or clusters of cases that have similar facts but reach different results help students detect and discuss the analogies and distinctions between them. Carefully chosen, memorable cases -- both classic and contemporary stimulate active student engagement and lively class discussion. Plentiful intermediate-length cases -- shorter than lead cases, but more detailed than note cases -- give students a broad survey of the field. Problems interspersed throughout the book help students develop the skills they need for exams. The authors also address the needs and preferences of instructors: The casebook's approach is compatible with any emphasis, whether doctrinal economic or philosophical. An extensive Teacher's Manual provides ideas for question and possible answers.
