This title, first published in 1985, examines the evolution of the laws relating to debt and credit during the industrial revolution. Since economic activity was so precarious during the industrial revolution it is important to explore the legal procedures designed to deal with its victims. This work examines two aspects of financial collapse during the industrial revolution: the legal and institutional framework which defined and regulated it, and bankruptcy itself. This title will be of interest to students of history, law and economics.
