Review quote

'This volume is the outcome of an unusually extensive effort of international collaboration ... this collection provides a feast of data and information which will be welcomed particularly for areas otherwise little known to English-speaking scholars. The value of the essays lies in the detailed assembly of data which, and this is their great merit, do dovetail well to form a persuasive general picture. They offer the opportunity of a firm jumping-off ground for further dtailed regional and national research. Meanwhile, they also represent a splendid example of the possibilities of fruitful international collaboration, for which the editors and organisers deserve our respect and gratitude.' Sidney Pollard, University of Sheffield, `Historians of multinational business will be amongst those most interested in the material presented here. There are fascinating discussions of the different institutional and contractual choices made by different countries when engaging in international banking and finance ... Rondo Cameron and V.I. Bovykin must be congratulated for performing so well the herculean task of assembling such a group of talented academics, and steering them safely towards the publication of this most useful volume.' Business History `Rondo Cameron and V.I. Bovykin must be congratulated for performing so well the herculean task of assembling such a group of talented academics, and steering them safely towards the publication of this most useful volume.' Business History `Cameron and Bovykin have put together an important volume. In the impoverished context of banking history, the book stands out as a key work which will form the basis of much future study.' Andrew Freeman, Financial Timesshow more
