I seem to have a vague recollection that Burrows & McKendrick recently published a casebook on restitution, but I can't find mention of it anywhere on the web. Did I just imagine that such a book exists? If not, can anyone tell me where I might obtain a copy?

Many thanks,

Mitchell McInnes

It's late, I think. This is from OUP's web site :

Title: Cases and Materials on the Law of Restitution
By Andrew Burrows and Ewan McKendrick.

Restitution is one of the most hotly debated and topical areas of the common law. Written by two leading commentators on the subject, this book of cases and materials contains extracts from the leading cases, predominantly from the UK and the Commonwealth. There are also extracts from the writings of some of the world's leading academic authorities on restitution law. These materials are supported by comments and notes written by the editors and there are also questions and notes on further reading. Clearly, the components of this book form a thorough exploration of the law of restitution and as such will be essential reading for all students of the law in this area. The layout of the book offers students and teachers the chance to learn the subject through studying the cases and extracts from articles published in scholarly journals. This is supported by the authors' expert commentary and there are also quotations and notes on further reading.
