Landmark Cases in Restitution

We have one more newly paperbacked volume for you in Hart's Landmark Cases series: University College London's Charles Mitchell and Paul Mitchell, ed., Landmark Cases in the Law of Restitution. We missed the hardback edition in 2006, so here is the full information. From Hart Publishing:
Media of Landmark Cases in the Law of RestitutionIt is now well established that the law of unjust enrichment forms an important and distinctive part of the English law of obligations. Restitutionary awards for unjust enrichment and for wrongdoing are clearly recognised for what they are. But prior to the last decade of the twentieth century the very existence of a separate law of unjust enrichment was controversial, its scope and content matters of dispute. In this collection of essays, a group of leading scholars reappraise some of the landmark cases in the area. Their investigations shed new light on some classic decisions, and persuasively invite readers to think again about some well-known authorities.
