About Consequences of Impaired Consent Transfers

Legal rules and principles do not exist in isolation, but form part of a system. In this structural comparison between English and German law, Birke Häcker explores the rules and principles governing impaired consent transfers of movable property and their reversal in two- and three-party situations.

This book is a re-publication of a work first published by Mohr Siebeck in Germany.
