The second part of this book presents a discussion of causation in the law of tort, contract, and in criminal law. Parts of the following chapters are designed to establish that courts have often applied, in their determinations of causal questions, a central concept in which great emphasis is laid on voluntary action or abnormal and coincidental events as negativing causal connection. They also show that the courts have often meant by causal connection certain varieties of interpersonal transactions such as inducement and, to an increasing extent, the provision of opportunities commonly exploited for harm.
