Wildy's Book of the Month: June 2019

The fourth edition of Andrew Burrows' seminal work Remedies for Torts, Breach of Contract, and Equitable Wrongs (previously Remedies for Torts and Breach of Contract), updates coverage of judicial remedies for civil wrongs in English law.

Since the previous edition in 2004, the scope of discussion in the book has developed to include scores of new cases, new statutory material, and new academic analysis. Examples of the new cases include:-

  • The Achilleas and Supershield Ltd v Siemens Building Technologies FE Ltd on remoteness in contract,
  • Morris-Garner v One Step Ltd on negotiating damages,
  • Knauer v Ministry of Justice on calculating damages for death,
  • Cavendish v Makdessi on penalty clauses,
  • Coventry v Lawrence on injunctions
  • and AIB Group (UK) Ltd v Mark Redler & Co on equitable compensation.

In addition to comprehensive updating to take account of new developments in the law, this book includes two new chapters. The first explores damages under the Human Rights Act of 1998; the second examines negotiating damages.

Remedies for Torts, Breach of Contract, and Equitable Wrongs by leading scholar Andrew Burrows is a popular work amongst students and practitioners due to its broad coverage, engaging style, accurate detail, the insightful application of academic context and enduring subject matter.
