Product Description

This Understanding Bankruptcy book integrates theoretical and policy perspectives with the nuts and bolts of bankruptcy law to give students an appreciation and thorough understanding of both. This treatise includes: complete discussion of the Bankruptcy Code and related federal law; survey of state law creditors' rights; consumer bankruptcy, including Chapter 13 reorganization; and business bankruptcy, including extensive coverage of Chapter 11 reorganization.
