International insolvency is a newly-established branch of the study of insolvency that owes much to the phenomenon of cross-border incorporations and the conduct of business in more than one jurisdiction. It is largely the offspring of globalisation and involves looking at both law and economic rules.

This book is a compendium of essays by eminent academics and practitioners in the field, who trace the development of the subject, give an account of the influences of economics, legal history and private international law and chart its relationship with finance and security issues as well as the importance of business rescue as a phenomenon.

Furthermore, the essays examine how international instruments introduced in recent years function as well as how the subject itself is continually being innovated by being confronted by the challenges of other areas of law with which it becomes entangled.
