Evans on Defamation in Singapore & Malaysia 3ed, 2008  $192.60 

General Editor: Keith R Evans, W.C.

Authors: Doris Chia & Rueben Mathiavaranam

It has been close to 15 years since the second edition of this book was published in 1993. This third edition is therefore timely as it updates the jurisprudence in Singapore and Malaysia with all reported cases from the second edition up to December 2006, together with some essential updates since then. The Damages Digest has also been brought up to date.

Readers are also fortunate to have the expertise and viewpoint of 2 authors who are legal practitioners from both sides of the Causeway, and who have experience in this field of the law.

The main text has undergone substantial reorganisation with more headings added to enhance accessibility readers. In addition to covering most, if not all the reported decisions in Singapore and Malaysia since 1993, this edition thoroughly discusses the significant changes in the trend of awarding damages which reached stratospheric heights in Malaysia from the period 1995 to 2001, until it was brought back down to earth in 2001. Also discussed is the manner in which the courts in Singapore and Malaysia have dealt with the extension of the common law defence of qualified privilege in England, referred to as ‘Media Privilege' or the ‘Reynolds defence'.

This book provides practitioners and anyone else interested in the law of defamation a base from which local jurisprudence can be identified and utilised, as well as a thorough discussion of all major aspects of this area of the law, which is often regarded as complex and highly developed with many arcane and unusual features.
