The Eighth Edition offers 10 information-packed chapters addressing issues of municipal liability in detail and discusses the historical background of the continuing evolution of these issues in Pennsylvania.

The book includes practical features, such as a brief chapter-by-chapter summary, an issues checklist, sample pleadings, interrogatories, document requests, and more.
