Critical Acclaim
‘The treatment of executory contracts in insolvency differs significantly across jurisdictions. Therefore, getting a comprehensive understanding of the different approaches existing around the world is not an easy task. Fortunately for the insolvency community, Professor Jason Chuah and Dr Eugenio Vaccari have helped us navigate that challenge by leading this excellent book that is expected to become an essential reading for practitioners, academics, judges and policy makers.’
– Aurelio Gurrea-Martínez, Singapore Management University, Singapore
