A New Book on Defamation and Celebrity

David Rolph, University of Sydney, Faculty of Law, has published Reputation, Celebrity, and Defamation Law (Ashgate: 2008). Here is the introduction to the book.
The concept of reputation is the central legal interest protected by the tort of defamation but is comparatively undertheorised in defamation jurisprudence. This book contributes to the analysis of reputation. The introduction to this book examines why it is important to analyse the concept of reputation. It reviews the meanings and importantly the value ascribed to reputation by judges and academics. It also outlines the overall structure and the argument of the book.
