Debt's Dominion:
A History of Bankruptcy Law in America
David A. Skeel Jr.

Book Description | Table of Contents
Chapter 1 [HTML] or [PDF format]

ADDITIONAL REVIEWS:

"Anyone seeking to understand both the evolving shape of bankruptcy law in America and its impacts on American legal, social, and economic trends would find Skeel's book a very useful starting place. Accessibly written and yet full of highly technical information, Debt's Dominion is one of the best books on bankruptcy currently available."--Charles L. Zelden, Journal of American History

"David Skeel's work provides us with a valuable one-volume overview of the progression of American consumer and corporate bankruptcy law over the last century."--Thomas G. W. Telfer, Law and Politics Book Review

ENDORSEMENTS:

"An extremely useful book. Its strength lies in its narrative of the past century and its description of the interplay of interest group politics."--Howard Rosenthal, Princeton University

"David Skeel has written an important book. Debt's Dominion: A History of Bankruptcy Law in America is an interesting and engaging account of bankruptcy law, and a worthy successor to Charles Warren's 1935 classic Bankruptcy in United States History. Skeel's story is startlingly different from traditional accounts and shows how the forces that bring about legislative change are more subtle than commonly understood."--Douglas G. Baird, University of Chicago
