Products liability is the object of late-night talk show jokes and politician's stump speeches. Yet, like many subjects discussed by politicians and TV stars, products liability is more subtle and multi-layered than it's made to appear. This subject is one of the most difficult and controversial in all of American law. Krauss' Principles of Products Liability, 3d is designed to ''unpack'' these subtleties and to allow the reader to understand current American products liability doctrine, and to intelligently participate in debates about proposed reforms. The book is chock full of summaries of case reviews and theoretical analyses, as well as advice for practitioners. It incorporates all the recent case law, through the 2018 term of the United States Supreme Court. By the time the reader has finished this book, she or he will understand a lot about automobiles, pharmaceuticals and workplace technology! Indeed, the practical knowledge imparted by an understanding of products liability is a powerful fringe benefit of practicing this area of the law.
