This book seeks to rationalize the position of the doctrine of subrogation within the general law of restitution. Within a systematic analytical framework, it gives a full account of the developing English and Commonwealth law of subrogation, and a selctive use is also made of United Statesdecisions. A number of false assumptions which have entered the case-law are exposed, and the principles upon which subrogation should be awarded are set on a regular basis.

Anyone facing a problem in subrogation, whether as an element of restitution, commercial law, or equity, should begin by consulting this book...The lawyer who starts with this work, though, will have the benefit not only of Mitchell's principled and well-structuredanalysis, but also of his enviably concise style; and the result will be a sound understanding of the issues at hand.''Trust Law International
