“I am confident that [Norchaya Talib on Torts in Malaysia] will become one of the main texts on the law of torts in Malaysia and just like the earlier editions of the late Professor Norchaya Talib’s books, this edition will also benefit many readers in this country.”

There have been significant developments in Malaysian tort law in the past decade. The chapters have been updated and revised by a team of expert contributors to capture those developments in this new book. Maintaining the structure as per Professor Norchaya's noted work, this book attends to new areas and developments in the law of torts through the introduction of the tort of harassment; expanded analysis on the defense of illegality, exclusion clauses and damages; focus on the new developments in the law of defamation, altering the landscape of free speech; and consideration of the extension of vicarious liability. Two additional chapters are included to elaborate on underdeveloped areas such as the economic torts and privacy.
