International Insolvency Law by Professor Bob Wessels provides a comprehensive overview of the relevant issues regarding cross-border insolvency matters. The book is a translated, revised and augmented edition of the Dutch book `Internationaal insolventierecht , which appeared in 2003, and is to serve as a handbook for insolvency practitioners.

It focuses on the (regional) developments of treaties and on `soft law and `best practice recommendations published by organisations like IMF, World Bank and INSOL International. This is followed by an overview of the current Dutch International Insolvency Law. Also thoroughly discussed is the UNCITRAL Model Law on Cross-Border Insolvency, including comments on Chapter 15 of the United States Bankruptcy Code, in force since October 2005, and the draft of the English Cross-Border Insolvency Regulations 2006.

The fourth chapter covers an elaborate analysis of the EU Insolvency Regulations, including 150 cases from ten jurisdictions together with foreign literature. The book contains an observation on the development of the future international insolvency laws, an extensive bibliography and a list of relevant websites
