              The 7th edition of The Law of Torts in New Zealand marks the passage of 25 years since the book was first published in 1991. As with previous editions, it seeks to explain and to discuss the evolving law in New Zealand and also to cover significant developments in the wider commo...n law world. The work ensures that the relevant rules and principles of tort law are assessed in the light of their objectives and likely consequences, and the policies underlying the law are given close attention. The new edition encompasses a number of significant developments in the law. Since mid-2005 when the fourth edition was published, there has been a stream of new decisions on torts, with major developments in various aspects of negligence, the economic torts, breach of confidence and the protection of privacy, defamation, Bill of Rights litigation and the award of damages. The Law of Torts in New Zealand is the definitive tort work for law students and practitioners. Its exemplary standards and authoritative reputation are both demonstrated by the fact that it is the book that is most frequently cited in decisions of the New Zealand courts.

              In many Western jurisdictions, the use and place of laws which protect reputation are being questioned. This book presents an analysis of the results of an empirical study of the effects of defamation laws in New Zealand carried out in 2001 and 2002. The study sought to discover ...whether such laws have a chilling effect on the media, to the extent that stories with a high element of public interest are suppressed or edited, with detrimental effects on freedom of expression. Collection of data for the study essentially broke down into three parts: a survey of the media, a survey of media lawyers and a search of civil court files. The results are presented in a series of accessible graphs and tables, together with a detailed analysis of media ownership in New Zealand, and a comparative analysis of relevant defamation laws and studies made in other jurisdictions, including in the United Kingdom and Australia. The book will have broad appeal to lawyers, academics and students interested in defamation law and freedom of expression, and in media and regulation of media. It will also be of interest to practitioners involved in empirical research.
