A Tort Theory Reading List for Students

Several students in my Torts class have requested a reading list on tort theory.  What should be part of a basic tort theory reading package for students?  At a minimum, I think it should cover individualized justice, deterrence, compensation/loss-spreading, and pluralist theories.  I seek your collective wisdom.  Don't be shy about recommending your own work.
