"A masterly survey of the remedies for breach of contract" - Professor Richard Hooley, Cambridge Law Journal
"A well-written and highly informative contribution to the literature on remedies for breach of contract... Rowan manages to construct a finely balanced view on how the availability of performance-orientated remedies in English law could (and should) be enhanced, without by-passing or interfering with established tenets of English law If you want to read up on contract law, add it to your essential reading list." - Vanessa Mak, Modern Law Review

comparing the different approaches of the English and French legal systems, and, in doing so, she identifies the jurisprudential differences between the two systems." - Howard Hunter, Journal of Contract Law
