Now in its third edition this popular text has been comprehensively rewritten to take account of all new developments in the law, as well as Law Commission reports and academic writings. The book has also been restructured and divided into parts which correspond to the primary functions ofthe remedies for torts and breach of contract, namely compensation, restitution and punishment, compelling performance or preventing (or compelling the undoing of) a wrong, and declaring rights.

Editorial Reviews

`Andrew Burrow's Remedies for Torts and Breach of Contract fully deserves its reputation as the leading student work on judicial remedies for civil wrongs in English law, as well as an accessible text offering some robust guidance for practitioners. Its author surely ranks as our pre-eminentscholar of the law of remedies...Though later editions of popular and well-established texts can miss the attentions of reviewers, the third edition of Remedies must not. It deserves a loud fanfare...It is impossible to offer an exhaustive account of Burrows' treatment of each within the narrowconfines of this reviewsufficient to say that they are all dealt with with Burrows' customary eloquence and incisiveness...the 3rd edition of Burrows' Remedies remains a superb book. No-one concerned with remedies for civil wrongs, as a legal academic, student or practitioner, can afford not to havea copy.'Stephen Watterson, Lloyds Maritime and Commercial Law Quarterly
