Published Dec 2010 (Oxford University Press)
ISBN: 9780199214532. Hard Cover.

Providing a detailed overview of the law of nuisance this book addresses contentious issues such as the distinction between the rule in Rylands v Fletcher and the law of private nuisance; the law that excludes personal injuries from the remit of nuisance, and the relationship between public and private nuisance. The book also considers statutory nuisance and the extent to which it can be seen to exceed private and public nuisances as well as utility of nuisance as an environmental tort. This book provides the most up-to-date and comprehensive treatment of the law of nuisance, drilling down to distinctions between these different types of nuisance as well as examining in detail the overlaps between them. 

Readership: The primary market will be solicitors and barristers in all sizes of firms dealing with tort claims such as damage to land and buildings, or interference from noise pollution, etc. It will be particularly relevant for solicitors and barristers dealing with property disputes, and as public and statutory nuisance is also addressed, local authority solicitors and environmental lawyers will also form part of the relevant market. Academics specialising in tort form a small secondary potential market. 

"Be it private nuisance, public nuisance or statutory nuisance, this book offers invaluable help in identifying and bottoming out the issues." - John Randall QC, St Philips Chambers 

"The book has all the qualities one would hope to find in a first-rate modern legal treatise: it is scholarly, opinionated, thorough, up-to-date, clear and authoritative." - Professor Ken Oliphant, Director of the Institute for European Tort Law 

"Murphy brings to the subject a historical perspective, clear analysis, and a healthy scepticism of simplistic explanations." - Stephen Waddams, University Professor and Goodman/Schipper Professor of Law, Faculty of Law, University of Toronto 

"This is an excellent book, comprehensive yet concise, scholarly yet accessible. It should be essential reading for anyone wanting to understand the structure and scope of the law of nuisance." - Mrs Janet O'Sullivan, Fellow in Law and University Senior Lecturer, Selwyn College, University of Cambridge
