This essay attempts to achieve the same goal for the complex and confusing topic of sovereign debt restructuring that the "Idiot's Guide" series of books achieve for their covered topics: to provide a systematic, accessible, and easy-to-grasp overview, so that readers can understand issues in context and go on to more advanced study. The essay also compares and contrasts public-law and private-law approaches to sovereign debt restructuring.
