The last decade has witnessed an unprecedented growth in insolvency law in many parts of the world. A deep and prolonged recession in Europe, the US, Japan, and beyond has fuelled the development of sophisticated and conceptually complex sets of laws aimed at coping with the consequences ofbusiness failure. The existence of an almost simultaneous programme of reform proposals and pressure for further changes in a number of jurisdictions is therefore not mere coincidence, but reflects the global character of the problems caused by corprorate collapse. It is of immense importance tolawyers and insolvency practitioners that they are able to understand recent developments in insolvency law in a number of jurisdictions, and that they are aware of what is happening internationally to improve procedures and methods to deal with new problems. This collection of essays covers recent developments in a number of jurisdictions and looks, also, at developments of the leading corporate insolvency specialists in the US, UK, Australia, Japan, and Canada. This volume will be a vital source of reference on up-to-date matters of law for insolvencyspecialists everywhere in the world. Contributors: Nick Segal, Axel Flessner, Lawrence P.

'timely and useful addition to the growing body of legal writing in the field...collection of detailed essays...The essays are substantial contributions to the literature in this field...this is certainly a worthwhile and informative text indeed, on a developing body of law and legal practicethe importance of which can only increase as international trade and commerce become more complex and even more far-reaching in their scope.'
