Bruce Feldthusen and Allen M. Linden
When Canadian Tort Law was first published in 1972, it became the first treatise on the law of torts in Canada. The tenth edition continues the standard of excellence achieved by each previous edition. As the treatise most commonly cited by the Supreme Court of Canada and other Canadian courts, Canadian Tort Law has greatly influenced the development of tort law in Canada.
