This book is about the protection from disinheritance. Regardless of what a person's will might say, the closest relatives usually have a claim to some of the deceased's property. The book explores this issue in a sample of countries in Europe as well as in the USA, Canada, Latin America, China, South Africa, Australia, and New Zealand.
