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 of the 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.

Reflecting their increased importance in practice, and the considerable recent academic attention devoted to them, there is also a new chapter on remedies for equitable wrongs such as breach of fiduciary duty and reach of confidence.

New Law Journal ...this very reasonably priced paperback provides a stimulating and at times provocative summary for the practitioner.

New Law Journal The interest of this book lies in the authoritative and stimulating commentary by the author.

David Sandy (Simmons & Simmons), New Law Journal In summary, the book, up to date as of August 2004, is a very readable and (relatively) concise review of the subject, which has the substantial benefit of highlighting and commenting authoritatively on issues of controversy. For that reason alone, this book is well worth its price.

Stephen Watterson, Lloyds Maritime & Commercial Law Quarterly 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-eminent scholar 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 narrow confines 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 have a copy.
