This is the second of the editions of this book that I have edited and written from the foundations of the work by Harvey McGregor. Although much has been rewritten there are still significant sections of some chapters which remain primarily arvey’s work, updated merely to reflect new case law; the process of simplifying, rationalising and further updating those sections will continue over future editions. The principal focus of the book remains, and will remain, as it was over the eight editions written by Harvey McGregor. That focus is to provide a clear and accurate statement of the English law on damages which, to a very large degree, is common law across the many jurisdictions which are based upon English law. The book therefore takes into account developments in other jurisdictions which point the way to clarification of uncertain areas of the law of damages. Indeed, in the two weeks before the submission of the manuscript of this book there were decisions on novel damages issues delivered by the Supreme Court of Canada and the High Court of Australia respectively in Atlantic Lottery Corp Incv Babstock [2020] S.C.C. 19 and Lewis v Australian Capital Territory [2020] HCA 26. In this edition, almost all of the 53 chapters have seen substantial amendments or additions. Some chapters have been the subject of very significant amendment or complete rewriting: the meaning of damages and compensation; causation, scope of duty, and remoteness of damage; vindicatory damages; licence fee damages; breach of confidence and improper use of private information; and damages under the Human Rights Act. Other chapters have seen substantial amendments and explanation: terminology and consequential loss clauses; exemplary damages; assault and false imprisonment; torts causing personal injury; and the
chapters concerning court procedure.
