The objective of this book is to enable both practitioners and students to gain a full understanding of the law of restitution and its place in the wider law of civil obligations. To this end, the book contains extracts from important cases as well as extracts from the writings of leading scholars. Explanatory text, notes and questions accompany the extracts which provide a stimulating and insightful guide that will leave readers with a thorough doctrinal and practical understanding of the law of restitution.

This work is exceptional in two ways. The first, unlike many similar books, this work offers the reader a coherent theoretical structure within which to study and understand the materials. The second is the extensive commentary that accompanies the materials. The analysis included in this work is deep and thorough and includes a range of questions that will challenge the reader. The book is both a textbook and a collection of primary materials.
