This collection of cases is the result of several years' work in the class-room by both of the editors. It is obvious that there are difficulties in the teaching of a subject based entirely on a statute, especially in the years immediately following the adoption of the statute, when its provisions have not yet been passed on by the courts; now, however, a considerable body of authoritative judicial interpretation of the Bankruptcy Act of 1898 has grown up, and it is hoped that the cases contained in this volume will serve to show the effective structure that has been constructed on the foundation of the Act.
