    Products Liability: Problems and Process offers a problem-based approach that balances doctrine with in-depth exercises that prompt students to apply the law in realistic fact scenarios. Rules and comments from the Restatement (Third) of Torts: Products Liability—for which two of the authors, James Henderson and Aaron Twerski, have served as co-reporters—are fully integrated throughout the text. Brief dialogs among the three authors present a range of perspectives on controversial issues within the field to help stimulate reflection and discussion. The book concludes with a chapter on products liability in a global context.
