The Evolution of the Species
This chapter offers a personal perspective on the development of the English law of restitution, both through the courts and especially through the work of academics. It raises the ‘cliff-hanging’ question, which only time will resolve, of whether Peter's last book Unjust Enrichment has correctly predicted the new world. If not, it argues that ‘we shall never know whether theory might have been turned into practice by the force of Birks's intellect and personality’.
