The book provides a comparative analysis of the law relating to remedies for breach of contract. It examines different remedies such as specific performance and damages and does so from the viewpoint of different legal systems, principally the English, American, German, French and Israeli. Each essay is written by a recognised specialist in his or her own field. Topics covered include the recent reforms of the law relating to breach of contract in Germany and the extent to which a claimant can choose the remedy which he or she deems to be the most appropriate. The book also makes use of a range of techniques, particularly economic analysis, when examining the legal rules. The book also contains an introductory essay, written by the editors, and an essay by Professor Friedmann which deals with the relationship between substantive rights and contract remedies.

...it will be of value to those working with international contracts... PWY Australian Law Review 2005 It is a valuable resource for the comparative private lawyer...The essays are diverse in the range of material they cover...containing some very valuable insights into some particular questions of remedies for breach... John Cartwright, Reader in the Law of Contract, University of Oxford European Review of Contract Law January 2005 Insgesamt gibt der Sammelband wertvolle Hinweise und Gedankenanstosse und gibt Einblick in neuere Forschungstendenzen im Vertragsrecht. Fur die rechtsvergleichende Forschungsgemeinschaft besonders hilfreich ist die umfangreiche Bearbeitung des nationalen 'case law' (insbesondere der israelischen Rechtsprechung) im Bereich der Rechtsbehelfe bei Vertragsverletzungen. Markus Muller-Chen Zeitschrift fur Europaisches Privatrecht 2007
