This textbook deals with the foundations and key issues of insolvency law and approaches the topic from a comparative perspective, i.e. it does not concentrate on one insolvency law in particular but rather introduces the relevant rules from various jurisdictions, primarily England (and Wales), France, Germany and those of the USA. It is case focused and designed for learning and teaching insolvency law.
