Providing a comprehensive overview of the body of law that regulates the insurance business, this Advanced Introduction evaluates the governing principles, policies, values, and purposes of insurance legislation and related judicial doctrines. It examines the ways in which the industry's origins help us understand the present, and how insurance connects to major public policy issues that will shape the world for future generations.
