The Humanity of Private Law - Part I: ExplanationHart Publishing, an imprint of Bloomsbury Publishing, has published The Humanity of Private Law - Part I: Explanation by Nicholas McBride.

The Humanity of Private Law presents a new way of thinking about English private law. Making a decisive break from earlier views of private law, which saw private law as concerned with wealth-maximisation or preserving relationships of mutual independence between its subjects, The Humanity of Private Law argues that English private law's core concern is the flourishing of its subjects.

The Humanity of Private Law will be essential reading for students, academics, and judges who are interested in understanding private law in common law jurisdictions, and for anyone interested in the nature and significance of human flourishing.

Bloomsbury have made the first chapter available to view online as a sample.
