This new textbook, written by experienced insolvency law academics, provides a clear, readable and comprehensive exposition of the principles of insolvency law in England and Wales so far as it relates to both corporate and personal debtors. It covers the subject in appropriate depth and breadth to make it suitable for single-module teaching of the subject, and is fully up-to-date with the latest legislative developments, including a treatment of the changes brought about by the recently enacted Enterprise Act 2002. Discussion, where appropriate, integrates both corporate and personal insolvency law. Important and critical cases are separated from the text and discussed in detail and suggestions for further reading are provided for all subjects covered by the book.~Insolvency Law is designed primarily as a text for law and commerce students, at both undergraduate and postgraduate level; as a reference tool for lawyers and insolvency practitioners; and as an introduction to the area for those practitioners who wish to familiarise themselves with the essential principles and issues in insolvency law. Andrew Keay is Professor of Corporate and Commercial Law at the University of Leeds.
Peter Walton is Senior Lecturer in Law at the University of Wolverhampton.
