Alan Schwartz, George Triantis, David Skeel, Barry Adler and other leading scholars critically examine the basic foundations of bankruptcy doctrine from Case v. Los Angeles Lumber to Butner to Maxwell Communications. In ten short and accessible chapters, Bankruptcy Stories provides students with an understanding of the institutional, economic and social forces that shape our bankruptcy system. The cases cover corporate, individual and transnational bankruptcy and illustrate the role that the Solicitor General plays in shaping bankruptcy law. The book focuses on the ways lawyers have operated within the parameters set by the Bankruptcy Code, such as establishing the Manville Asbestos Trust.
