Liability: The Legal Revolution and Its Consequences.




Liability: The Legal Revolution and Its Consequences
(Basic Books, 1988)

by Peter W. Huber


“Huber’s book is brilliant, provocative, original, and iconoclastic. It should be read by everyone interested in (or appalled by) our legal system.” – Paul M. Bator, University of Chicago Law School

“Remarkable…Cites some hair-raising examples of a legal system spinning dangerously out of control…Shows convincingly how the expanding tort liability system is raising the cost of living and, even worse, is threatening our international competitiveness.” – Ronald Bailey, Forbes

“A well-written and very serious study of a problem that affects everyone.” – Renee Wayne Golden, San Francisco Chronicle

“Shows with extraordinary clarity and power how our lives are different because of the expansion of liability.” – George Priest, Yale Law School
