Tort law recognizes the many ways one person wrongs another. Arthur Ripstein brings coherence to torts’ diversity in a philosophically grounded, analytically powerful theory. He shows that all torts violate the basic moral idea that each person is in charge of his or her own person and property, and never in charge of another’s person or property.
Human Rights and Private Wrongs breaks new ground by considering a series of fascinating issues that are normally ignored by human rights specialists because they are too "private" to consider as policy issues: children's labor migration; refugee policy towards unaccompanied minors; financial matters of investor and business responsibility; and complex questions involving access to the benefits of pharmaceutical research, transnational organ trafficking, and the control over genetic research.

Reprint of the first edition. This was the first English-language treatise on the subject. As the Dictionary of American Biography points out, it marked the "beginning of a revolution in legal thought" because it was the first to approach torts as a distinct legal category. Before Hilliard, "practical text-writers...regarded such wrongs as too divergent in nature for unified treatment and merely discussed some distinct wrong" (V:53-54). Hilliard [1806-1878], a Harvard-educated attorney who lived in Boston, was a prolific and distinguished author of treatises on jurisprudence, real property, contracts, business law and other subjects.

The Commentaries are considered as the leading work on the development of English law and also they played a great role in the development of the American legal system. The Commentaries were influential mainly because they were in fact readable, and because they met a need. The work is as much an apologia for the legal system of the time as it is an explanation; even when the law was obscure, Blackstone sought to make it seem rational, just, and inevitable that things should be how they were.
