“The Change of Position Defence is a book that the subject has long required. The research is exhaustive ... the analysis well-structured, and the writing is a model of clarity and accessibility.” – Mitchell McInnes,
Law Quarterly Review, Volume 126
“Dr Bant makes some original and insightful points about the change of position defence and the wider law of unjust enrichement … her writing is fresh and clear.
Original and thought provoking … many passages … prompted me to stop and think again about the different aspects of the change of position defence, estoppel, recission, and the more general law of unjust enrichment. A full reading is warmly recommended.” – Charles Mitchell,
Restitution Law Review
“The Change of Position Defence is a necessary and important book.
This accomplished monograph is the product of serious and commendable scholarship. Elise Bant has provided a definitive account of the change of position defence: all those interested in restitution will find her analysis enriching.” – James Lee,
Lloyd's Maritime and Commercial Law Quarterly
“Bant provides a detailed discussion of every aspect relating to the defence of change to position. Her method, to put the change of position defence into its historical and legal context, proves to be most fruitful and enables her to develop original solutions.
Bant's arguments ... are both rich and powerful.
Bant's book is to be welcomed. The richness of her ideas and arguments, her grip of the authorities over such a wide range of legal institution, and her courage to do comparative work beyond the Common Law world are admirable. Her findings are not only of interest for English and Australian law for which they have been formulated but also to Scots and German lawyers. And she adopts a methodology that is worth closer analysis.” – Phillip Hellwege,
