“I truly welcome this thoroughly revised edition of the Introduction to Banking textbook. Its authors are world-class scholars who on a daily basis research a wide array of highly relevant banking topics and maintain many close contacts with the commercial and central banking community. I can see no better guides to lead undergraduates into the fascinating (and at times bewildering) banking landscape.” Steven Ongena, Professor of Banking, University of Zurich, Swiss Finance Institute and CEPR “I heartily endorse Introduction to Banking 2nd Edition, which thoroughly covers the topic of banking in the post-crisis world. Unlike other textbooks which are very US-centric, this is a global banking book which covers issues and institutions on a worldwide basis.” Allen N. Berger, H.

It will be an essential study text for all serious students of banking, and a helpful reference for existing practitioners.” Simon Thompson, Chief Executive, Chartered Banker Institute “This thoroughly revised edition of the book contains inestimable new chapters on banking crises, new financial instruments and a wide range of advanced issues. The topics are examined with a distinguishing combination of analytical and practical approaches. This makes the book an invaluable instrument for teaching banking to undergraduates both at universities and business schools. I highly recommend it.” Elena Carletti, Professor of Finance, Bocconi University, IGIER and CEPR Introduction to Banking 2nd Edition offers a comprehensive insight into the business of banking, providing information about the impact of the financial crisis upon the banking sector globally and the far-reaching regulatory reforms.
