Mars: The Law of Insolvency in South Africa has established itself as a specialist work that has for decades been the guide for anyone who practices in this important area of law.

The tenth edition of Mars: The Law of Insolvency has been revised by a team of eleven authors to include developments in the law of insolvency and associated areas of the law to give readers an up-to-date treatment of this important area of law.

While retaining the proven structure of the previous editions, this edition aims at dealing comprehensively with all aspects of insolvency law. The latest edition retains references to landmark cases and articles in legal journals but also incorporates numerous new references to critical analyses of applicable legislation, case law, insolvency law reform initiatives and international developments in the field of insolvency law, enabling the reader to gain a proper understanding of the principles underlying the South African law of insolvency.
