Book Review: Cases and Materials on Creditors’ Rights, 35 Illinois Law Review 117 (1940)


The new edition of Professor Hanna's well-known casebook on insolvency, prepared by Professor Hanna and Professor McLaughlin, is too clear and full of material to give a reviewer much opportunity for parading his victims' minor sins. Questions of detail arise, of course, and there is at least one omission that may turn out to be an important flaw in the plan of the book. But as a whole "Creditors' Rights" is a sample of the best kind of academic workmanship, thorough, painstaking and critical in its presentation of doctrine.

For all the finesse of its execution, however, "Cases on Creditors' Rights" is to my mind a casebook of limited uses, because of the scope and order of the materials it contains.
