The first book (and probably the only book to date) on China's tort law that was written in English for international audiences
Explains the theories, legislative processes and applications of China's modern tort law from three different standpoints (academic, statute and case law perspectives), providing a comprehensive view of the law's past, present and future
Mr. Xiang Li, one of the two authors recently received a letter from President Obama, acknowledging his excellent contribution and achievements
The explosive economic development in China over the last three decades has created social challenges unprecedented in the country's history. In response, China has overhauled its existing tort laws and even created new tort laws. By exploring its principles, theories and history, this book provides international readers a fresh outlook on China's tort law system. Granted that some concepts or theories in China's modern tort laws were "borrowed" from the west, the principles behind them can nevertheless often find their roots in ancient Chinese philosophies, concepts or even laws. This book also uses real cases to explain the courts' application of China's tort laws and the meaning of the corresponding statutes.
