Commentary on the German Insolvency Code

I review Dr Eberhard Braun's book "Commentary on the German Insolvency Code" in the Winter 2007 issue of Eurofenix - and below. The book, which Bob Wessels has also reviewed (here), has contributions from some 20 authors from Schultze & Braun.

Dr Braun's impressive volume is written in English and runs to almost 3,000 paragraphs of commentary over some 600 pages, 95% of which are devoted to commentary on the Insolvency Code, section by section. It also contains a bibliography with around 700 entries. What the reader should remember is that this is a book written from a German perspective. It quite rightly does not feel the need to stress the aspects of civil law jurisdiction that may be less familiar to English readers, for example. Rather, it helps non-German readers to understand and appreciate how German insolvency works. Above all, however, it is a practical book where "abstract legal issues are not addressed" and a worthy addition to European practitioners' bookshelves.
