Bankruptcy and related law in a nutshell by David G Epstein( Book )

27 editions published between 1973 and 2017 in English and Japanese and held by 2,158 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"[This book] has been revised to reflect changes in case law, changes in bankruptcy practices, and changes in bankruptcy casebooks. Today's bankruptcy courses are now much more than just the automatic stay, avoiding powers, and discharge."--
Brasília, plan and reality; a study of planned and spontaneous urban development by David G Epstein( Book )

9 editions published in 1973 in English and held by 709 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A masterful account of Brasilia, the city of the future, where Brazil's continental destiny was to be fulfilled, where government would be efficient and functional, without the interference of radical students and labor leaders. The building of the city was a gigantic public-works program, reflecting the various ties that existed between the planners on one hand and the contractors and suppliers on the other. Epstein gives a detailed account of the pilot plan and the rise of satellite towns between 1957 and 1967. The planners dreamed of a city that would transcend the frustrations of urban life in the underdeveloped world, but they failed to provide a sector where the actual builders of the dream city would live. Shacktowns soon developed, and have expanded to accommodate migrants--often displaced, landless cultivators--who continue to be attracted to the city. The conclusion Epstein comes to is that urban squatting will remain a prominent feature of Brasilia, a part of a system deeply rooted in local, national, and global structure and ideology. Until there are revolutionary changes in society, squatting and shantytowns will be a fact of life in the underdeveloped world

A short & happy guide to business organizations by David G Epstein( )

6 editions published between 1984 and 2020 in English and held by 157 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"'Short and Happy?' This book is indeed 'short' - much shorter than any other student guide. The reason is that other student guides are written to help you understand your business associations/organizations course, to get you through 42 or 56 class-hours. This student guide is different. It is written to help you understand your prof's final exam questions - to get you through a 3- or 4- hour exam. Rather than teaching you how cases and concepts are applied in the real world, this book teaches you how cases and concepts need to be applied in the 'unreal' world of law school exams. This is the book to read after you have spent the semester working on law review (Or was it clinic? Or client counseling competitions? Or Kundalini yoga? Or shape note singing?) instead of Business Associations. As Camus (and Noreen Vanderslice) might counsel, 'Don't be Sisyphus. Buy and read this book'"--Unedited summary from book cover
Cases and materials on contracts : making and doing deals by David G Epstein( Book )

7 editions published between 2011 and 2018 in English and held by 139 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This edition of MADD is consistent with the approach we have taken in connection with previous new editions in that we have attempted to update and improve the overall usability of the book without significantly altering the core organizational structure. We have also tried to maintain the book's conversational (and sometime irreverent) tone". -- PREFACE

Bankruptcy by David G Epstein( )

4 editions published between 1979 and 2019 in English and held by 80 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This audio discussion is designed for students who are about to take their final exam in a bankruptcy course and need help in: Understanding bankruptcy concepts; Seeing the relationship between various bankruptcy concepts; Organizing what they read for class and heard in class; Anticipating what might be asked on their exam; and Structuring possible exam answers Because some professors emphasize business bankruptcy and some professors emphasize consumer bankruptcy, the audio and accompanying material are divided into (1) bankruptcy concepts that will be important in an exam question on business bankruptcy, (2) bankruptcy concepts that will be important in exam questions on consumer bankruptcy and (3) bankruptcy concepts that will be important in all exam questions. Student study time is limited and precious and this division enables them to focus on what their individual professor has focused on
