The Law of Nuisance

John Murphy

  • The only book to provide a complete guide to the law of nuisance including coverage of remedies for private nuisance, determinants of liability in public nuisance, and various types of statutory nuisance such as artificial light
  • Considers case law including Rylands v Fletcher, R v Goldstein, and Hunter v Canary Wharf Ltd, questioning court decisions which sit uncomfortably with accepted principles of nuisance
  • Addresses the impact of the Human Rights Act 1998 on private nuisance and in particular on local authorities
  • Includes relevant sections of the Environmental Protection Act 1990 making this a comprehensive and in-depth resource
