About Understanding the Law of Obligations

NEW in paperback



From the Reviews of the hardback edition:

This is a fascinating and thought-provoking collection of eight essays..... Taken together they represent a coherent and compelling exposition of the English law of obligations.... One is left with the picture of an [author] ... who remains a devotee of "practical scholarship" and the deductive technique of the common law and has a grasp on its intricacies second to non."

Edwin Peel, The Law Quarterly Review, 1999



"[These essays], all concerned with various aspects of contract, tort and unjust enrichment, are a pleasure to peruse, and a distinct cut above the usual lacklustre collection of past triumphs now beyond their sell-by date. Without exception they are both topical and relevant: ... together they form a readable, scholarly and eclectic mixture of exposition and polemic, of speculation and analysis"

Andrew Tettenborn, The Cambridge Law Journal, 1999



"..quite simply the most convincing and complete explanation of the law of obligations that is currently available - the book is thorough, compelling, definitive, and highly important."

Paul Kearns, Anglo-American Law Review, 1999



"an extremely important work, produced by a leading academic."

David Wright, Adelaide Law Review
