Summary

The aim of this book is to examine the law of product liability from a comparative law standpoint. It is now ten years since the publication of Comparative Product Liability, edited by Professor C. J. Miller and published by the British Institute of International and Comparative Law in association with the United Kingdom National Committee for Comparative Law. The time was thus ripe to examine the topic again.

The origin of this book is a research project undertaken by the Tort Law Centre at the British Institute of International and Comparative Law. Many of the contributions to the book have emerged from the Institute's work on product liability, whilst other chapters were originally presented by their authors at Institute events.

It is also appropriate to mention here the role of the Product Liability Forum, which, as well as generously supporting the work of the Institute in this area, has provided a stimulating arena for discussion of product liability issues.

Many thanks also to the staff of Cambridge University Press who have overseen the production process.

The Law is as stated on 1 March 2004.
