« Fully updated and revised, The Principles of the Law of Restitution, Third Edition, provides a detailed yet accessible account of the law. It is a book that will provide students, academics, and practitioners with a first port of call in thinking about the law of restitution. » Duncan Sheehan, Professor of Business Law, School of Law, University of Leeds « This Third Edition makes a substantial contribution to our understanding of the law of restitution and captures significant doctrinal and theoretical developments in the area. The book is an essential addition to the restitution scholar's library. » Jessica Hudson, Lecturer, UNSW Law School The third edition of The Principles of the Law of Restitution brings this widely cited and influential volume fully up to date. It has been substantially rewritten to reflect the significant changes in the law of restitution and the expansion in the theoretical and critical commentary on the subject. Following important decisions of the Supreme Court and other courts, large-scale changes have been made to the chapters on enrichment, at the expense of the claimant, mistake, claims against public authorities, and change of position. Additionally, this edition contains a new chapter on the operation ofjuridical bars on restitutionary claims. References to developments in other jurisdictions have been expanded for this edition, reflecting the significance of these changes and how they assist in the interpretation of English law and provide a basis for criticising that law. Further, in the light of leading cases and the contributions of restitutionary scholars around the world, the author's views on specific controversial debates about the ambit, function, and interpretation of the subject have changed, sometimes radically. One significant aspect of the book remains unchanged: the book continues to focus on the identification and analysis of the principles which underpin the law of restitution as a whole, but with reference to its three distinct parts: unjust enrichment, restitution for wrongs, and the vindication of property rights. This approach provides the reader with a peerless guide to the law of restitution. Graham Virgo is Professor of English Private Law at the University of Cambridge and Fellow of Downing College, Cambridge.
