This edition retains the structure of the casebook's earlier editions, but expands its focus to capture the ways that current bankruptcy practice has been reshaped by lawyers and judges. The book reflects a continued commitment to the casebook's original account of bankruptcy law's logic and limits for individual debtors under Chapters 7 and 13 and for corporate debtors under Chapter 11. The updated material takes the book beyond this fundamental approach and adds a focus on modern practice, including new sections that address reorganization plan negotiation, gifting, structured dismissals, and third-party releases, among other important developments. In these ways, the new edition looks backwards and forwards simultaneously toward a more complete understanding of the subject.
