Unjustified enrichment is one of the most intellectually vital areas of private law. However, little unanimity exists among civil-law and common-law legal systems about structuring this important branch of the law of obligations. This book analyzes a range of key issues which are considered respectively by a representative of a common-law, as well as a civil-law system. The approach highlights similarities and differences between systems, and what each can learn from the other.


Review of the hardback: 'There is an enormous amount of interesting argument and learning in this book.' Law Quarterly Review

Review of the hardback: '… an absorbing and magical read … it is the most comprehensive publication dealing with the key issues of the discipline on a comparative level … a must read for any comparatist and all enrichment and restitution enthusiasts. It succeeds brilliantly in its aims and is a very welcome new source of reference in my own library.' Edinburgh Law Review
