   schema:description ""The Law of Delict in South Africa, second edition, provides a clear, concise and rigorous introduction to the general principles of delictual law. Integrating the common law, statutory law and constitutional perspectives, the text provides a rich contextual framework which supports understanding. The structure of the text supports comprehension by clearly reflecting the distinctions between the Aquilian action, Germanic action, and Actio iniuriarum, and reinforces practical application by reflecting the process of enquiry which is followed when analysing delictual matters. Revised and updated, the second edition focuses more strongly on problem solving application. It supports learning and the development of independent academic skills through challenging and engaging pedagogical features which bring an applied, critical and reflective approach to the content. The following ancillary materials are available to lecturers, to support conceptualisastion and to enrich teaching and learning: an applied guide to solving problems in the law of delict; a PowerPoint slide presentation; an application question bank"--Unedited summary from book cover."@en ;
