The time has been long overdue for a neat little book like Dr Mitchell's to unite and co-ordinate subrogation as a whole against the scheme of modern restitution scholarship ... this is a thoroughly decent and competent piece of work ... your reviewer enjoyed reading the book, liked thinking about the points it raised and is happy to recommend it to anyone else interested. (Cambridge Law Journal
This text provides a thorough examination of the continuing development of the law of subrogation under the English and Commonwealth law. Reference is also made to the US position ... The text undertakes a rigorously analytical approach to its subject ... It will be of particular interest to restitution lawyers and academics. However, insurance lawyers will also find this text of assistance, particularly for its thorough examination of the principles on which a claim of subrogation ought to be based and for its detailed review of the relevant case law ... This is a well-researched and well-argued text and will provide a useful reference work for any lawyer seeking a greater understanding of the English and Commonwealth law of subrogation. (International Insurance Law Review
