'This collection brings together a wide range of seminal contributions to the economic literature on bankruptcy. Its value-added is the structure which the editor has imposed, which organizes them in a clear and coherent way. Alongside the excellent introduction, this yields a comprehensive roadmap of the field. It will be a valuable resource for a wide range of researchers, from those wanting a thorough grounding in the literature to those simply wanting a pellucid sketch of its contours.'
- John Armour, University of Oxford, UK
