Paul Mitchell is Professor of Laws at University College London where his main research interests are the law of tort contract and unjust enrichment.The first historical treatment of tort law in England during a formative period of its development.This is the first historical study of English tort law during the first half of the twentieth century. It is particularly concerned with how the common law responded to dramatic social changes and with the emergence and operation of the first official body tasked with reforming private law.This is the first historical study of English tort law during the first half of the twentieth century. It is particularly concerned with how the common law responded to dramatic social changes and with the emergence and operation of the first official body tasked with reforming private law.Many of the defining features of the modern law of tort can be traced to the first half of the twentieth century but until now developments in that period have never received a dedicated historical examination. This book examines both common law and statutory innovations paying special attention to underlying assumptions about the operation of society the function of tort law and the roles of those involved in legal changes. It recovers the legal and social contexts in which some landmark decisions were given (and which puts those decisions in a very different light) and draws attention to significant and suggestive cases that have fallen into neglect. It also explores the theoretical debates of the period about the nature of tort law and reveals the fascinating patterns of influence and power at work behind statutory initiatives to reform the law.1.

[Mitchell] has sought in this book to locate English tort law in the period 1900 to 1950 in its contemporary legal and social context. In the task that he set himself he has succeeded admirably and the result will be of considerable interest not only to legal historians and tort lawyers but to many more besides.
