Ong on Rescission is Professor Denis SK Ong's fifth treatise in the field of equity. With its rigorous, yet accessible, approach to this complex area of law Ong on Rescission is a perfect supplement to his earlier acclaimed works: Trusts Law in Australia (now in its 4th edition), Ong on Equity, Ong on Specific Performance and Ong on Subrogation.

The text offers a thorough study of rescission ab initio both at common law and in equity. As in his earlier works, the book offers a succinct exposition of all the key relevant principles of law, facilitated by a careful, and on occasion critical, analysis of all the leading authorities. To assist the reader, the essential passages of judgments under consideration are reproduced.
