Steve Hedley, "The Cambridge Law Journal", 1998. Review from previous edition "The editors' commentary throughout the book is diverse and interesting."
Donal Nolan, King's College London, Lloyd's Maritime and Commerical Law Quarterly '...Burrows and McKendrick is a model casebook. The layout and appearance of the material is excellent. At the beginning, there is a comprehensive and clear list of contents, which helpfully includes the names of all the cases and articles extracted within...As far as the material selected for inclusion is concerned, Burrows and McKendrick have done a difficult task extremely well...The authors are to be congratulated on an excellent book. With works of this calibre
on the desks of our students, the future health of restitution will be assured.'
