Editorial Reviews


“Immensely important. Farnsworth’s book is a major contribution to the field, providing a succinct, clear, and theoretically informed summary of the doctrine. I have little doubt that it will be of frequent use at law schools, courtrooms, and law offices alike, thus providing support to the belated revival of restitution in the United States.”
-- Hanoch Dagan, Stewart and Judy Colton Professor of Legal Theory and Innovation, Tel-Aviv University

"Farnsworth’s Restitution offers a fresh look at an underappreciated subject. The analysis is intuitive, full of common sense, and elegantly written and organized. It is traditional in the sense that it takes legal duties and categories seriously, but it is novel in its willingness to set aside esoteric subjects and doctrines in order to produce a concise treatment. I recommend the book to every law student as an example of how to think about a subject that too often falls between the cracks."
-- Saul Levmore, University of Chicago Law School

"Farnsworth’s terrific book covers an amazing amount of material on the law of restitution in a concise, insightful, and appealing fashion. It should contribute greatly to bringing this important branch of the law out of the shadows."
-- Henry E. Smith, Harvard Law School

"There has never been a good short introduction to the law of restitution and unjust enrichment. There is now, and it’s terrific—clear, conversational, sophisticated in its analysis, and with remarkable depth for its 186 pages."
-- Douglas Laycock, University of Virginia School of Law

“Farnsworth does a terrific job of describing restitution and explaining when it is used and applied. . . .This is a terrific book exploring an often neglected legal concept. . . . Highly recommended.”
Choice Published On: 2015-04-06

“With illustrative hypotheticals, discussion of case law, and integration of prior scholarship, Farnsworth builds a comprehensive and illuminating approach to the doctrinal contours of restitution.”
