From the Publisher
With the sharp increase in bankruptcies over the past decade and an increasingly wide cross-section of occupational distribution represented, the question treated by this study is both a legal and a sociological one. It does not attempt to study the internal workings of bankruptcy, but the authors look outward to the larger population of bankrupt debtors. Using a multi-disciplinary approach, the authors have drawn social and economic portraits of typical debtors against the backdrop of the law and with hard empirical data.
