About the Authors
  • Remedies is the subject of increasing academic interest. It is one of the key organising concepts of the obligations approach to the common law, the pre-eminent approach in law schools, now officially sanctioned by the Law Society. This second edition modernizes the first edition quite considerably. This work determines the place of remedies in contract and tort within the current debate about the reform of the common law obligation.
