This book deals with a very interesting issue, particularly against the background of the financial conundrum that many states find themselves in. Sovereign insolvency, renegotiation of debt, debt relief et cetera are part of the discussions taking place worldwide and in many if not most instances the emphasis on the sanctity of contract and the rule that everyone is bound by his/her contractual undertakings are not receiving as much attention as the fact that when a government is overburdened with debt a helping hand should be extended.
