This new work is the first comparative study of central and eastern European secured transactions laws to be written in English. It gives a valuable insight into the legal reforms taking place in the transition economies of central and eastern Europe (and elsewhere), explaining the generalmechanics of secured transactions laws in a helpful and practical way.The book will explore the characteristics that make security law useful from a practical point of view, the purpose being not merely to describe existing rules on security but to concentrate on the question of how those rules can apply in practice. The author concentrates on seven central andeastern European secured transactions laws in Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, Romania, the Russian Federation and the Slovak Republic. These laws are contrasted with the EBRD's Model Law on Secured Transactions and the EBRD's Core Principles for a Modern Secured Transactions Law. Inaddition, English, German and US law (which, among others, influenced the EBRD's work) are used as further reference sources.
