REVIEWS

'Unjust enrichment is a subject which has been shaped by leadership from the academy in the last half century. This new edition will ensure that this continues to be the case. ... [The] text has again advanced the law of unjust enrichment. And for that we owe the new editors, and their two forebears, many thanks.'

His Honour Justice James Edelman, Law Quarterly Review (2012)

'It is difficult to review what is arguably the most anticipated book on unjust enrichment in recent years without first acknowledging the magnitude of the exercise it represents. The new editors of this seminal title have embraced the task of updating it with gusto. Much of the text has been completely restructured and substantially rewritten, presenting a refreshed, accessible and coherent outlook that will appeal to all engaged with the subject, be they student, practitioner, academic or judge. … [This] is certain to be an essential title for many years to come.'

Eli Ball, Restitution Law Review (2012)
