              Landmark Cases in Defamation Law is a diverse and engaging edited collection, bringing together eminent scholars from the United Kingdom, the United States, Australia, Canada and New Zealand, analysing cases of enduring significance to defamation law. The cases selected have all ...had a significant impact on defamation law, not only in the jurisdiction in which they were decided but internationally. Given the formative influence of English defamation law in the United States, Australia, Canada and New Zealand, the focus is predominantly on English cases, although there are also significant United States and Australian decisions included in the collection. The authors all share a common interest in defamation law but bring different expertise and emphasis to their respective chapters. Among the authors are specialists in tort law, legal history and internet law. The cases selected cover all aspects of defamation law, from defamatory capacity and meaning; practice and procedure; defences; and remedies.

              Taking Robert Post's seminal article 'The Social Foundations of Reputation and the Constitution' as a starting point, this volume examines how the concept of reputation changes to reflect social, political, economic, cultural and technological developments. It suggests that the v...alue of a good reputation is not immutable and analyzes the history and doctrines of defamation law in the US and the UK. A selection of Australian case studies illustrates different concepts of defamation law and offers insights into their specific nature. Drawing on approaches to celebrity in media and cultural studies, the author conceptualizes reputation as a media construct and explains how reputation as celebrity is of great contemporary relevance at this point in the history of defamation law.

              Defamation Law3/4by David Rolph provides a comprehensive, up-to-date account of Australian defamation law. This work provides both a practical resource and an explanation of the historical background and current sources of Australian defamation law.3/4 David Rolph analyses the co...mpeting interests underlying defamation ? the protection of reputation and freedom of expression ? and considers in detail the requirements of the plaintiffes case for defamation, the range of available defences and the remedies which may be awarded. As well as focussing on the tort of defamation, this work considers criminal defamation and civil causes of action which may overlap with it. Critically for both practitioners and students, this work considers a range of practical questions such as how to deal with directions for juries, costs, damages, interlocutories particular to defamation, capacity arguments, particulars and interrogatories. In this work, David Rolph has struck the necessary balance between providing essential practical guidance and the historical context of the law, to provide both defamation lawyers and students of defamation law with the ideal text on the subject.3/4
