Oliver Wendell Holmes is the acknowledged source of twentieth-century tort law, but David Rosenberg, in this bold book, takes sharp issue with the current portrayal of Holmes as a legal formalist in torts who opposed the notion of strict liability and dogmatically advocated a universal rule of negligence, primarily to subsidize industrial development.
