  • Review(s) from previous edition

    "The Law of Rescission is a tremendous achievement. For the first time, a book sets out specifically, systematically, comprehensively, and as clearly as possible, the law relating to the rescission of contracts, deeds and gifts in England and Wales. For judges, practitioners and scholars in that jurisdiction it will be an indispensable reference. In other Commonwealth jurisdictions such as Australia, the book is also likely to be of great use... - Matthew Harding, Melbourne University Law Review

    "As a work of detailed, relavant, practical scholarship and guide through the maze it cannot be faulted. It provides an important resource for our knowledge and understanding of a persistently difficult phenomenon and will be invaluable to practitioner and legal academic alike ... The first comprehensive and truly modern exercise in cataloguing, organising and critically analysing a broad range of authority on a subject-matter hitherto dispersed and obscure ... In my view the most comprehensive, detailed and authorative statement to date" - Kit Barker, Law Quarterly Review

    "Even more impressively, they have been able to express their views, in concise and comprehensible propositions which are well organised into paragraphs and subject headings. The result is a clear, concise and authoritative tezt which is easy to use. One can only take one's hat off to them ... Overall, this is a work of considerable scholarship and utility. These features are rarely combined in a legal textbook" - Michael Gronow, Victorian Bar News \d Winter 2008

    "This book serves a very useful-indeed an essential-purpose by supplying the means of obtaining an accurate picture of the past and present states of the law ... This book will be very useful to judges, practitioners and academics, and is much welcomed as, in Lord Walker's phrase, 'a remarkable work of practical scholarship'" -Oxford University Commonwealth Law Journal

    "This is a book that should find its way on to the shelves of every law library (including those of courts who do serious civil work) and of every office or set of chambers where property or mercantile law is practised. On any view it is a work of high distinction which should be around for very many years." - Roger Cooke,(Retired County Court Judge). The Conveyancer

    "I found this a tremendously impressive work ... I can truly say this is the most significant new work which is a must for all thinking equity, commercial, coneyancing and contract lawyers" - Australian Law Journal
