The author takes this development as her starting point in an investigation into the nature of product liability and beyond, into a consideration of important general topics in civil liability today. The first part of the book deals with the doctrinal history of the new Act, then goes on to consider the larger picture, viz. the impact of EC membership on the legislative freedom of Member States, and the contrasting dynamics of US civil liability. Part 2 evaluates the usefulness of abstract theories of civil liability from the perspective of a tort lawyer concerned with detailed legal rules; part 3 analyses where and why instability may arise in legal regimes of limited scope and in broader liabilities such as negligence."@en ;
