The scope of this book covers receivables.

This book covers comprehensive comparison and analysis of the laws on the assignment of and security interests in receivables of fifteen major jurisdictions, encompassing common law jurisdictions, Roman-Germanic jurisdictions and French-Napoleonic jurisdictions as well as relevant EU Directives. To be more specific, this book compares and analyzes the relevant legal systems of the US, Canada, New Zealand, Australia, Korea, Japan, France, Belgium, England, Hong Kong, Singapore, China, Germany, Austria and the Netherlands, the EU Directive on financial collateral arrangements. Furthermore, in order to analyze those legal systems from the international perspective, this book compares relevant international conventions.
