Choice of Law in Tort has been long regarded as being a difficult topic. In this book, the author seeks to go behind the complex case law which has led to this situation and to explain the reasoning processes which have underpinned the development which have given rise to the problems which are apparent. The author explores cases from the United Kingdom, Australia and the United States as well as the Rome II Regulation in Europe. The various problems which continually arise in the area in all the jurisdictions are compared, discussed and analysed. In the United States especially, the prctical difficulties which arise from the factual situations which give rise to choice of law problems in tort are intertwined with theories regarding the matter generally. Further,those historical and theoretical considerations are analysed and interpreted. The book should be valuable and useful for those people interested in both municipal and comparative conflict of laws.
