This is a book on the financial crisis that is both timely and Judicious. His sure historical grasp gives Youssef Cassis a unique insight into the links between financial crises and major shifts in regulatory and governance structures. * Harold James, Professor of History and International Affairs and Director of the Program in Contemporary European Studies, Princeton University *
In his earlier work Youssef Cassis has shown deep understanding of the dynamics of financial centres. Here he turns he attention to an anatomy of financial crises in the 20th century, where his analysis is acute and his insights are penetrating. * Howard Davies, Director, London School of Economics and Political Science *
If the financial crisis has a silver lining, it is that it has heightened appreciation of the importance of financial history. In this book Youssef Cassis, our preeminent historian of banking and finance, illustrates why this is the case. Newcomers will find an accessible introduction to the history of financial crises, while specialists will find much that is new and novel. Recommended to both. * Barry Eichengreen, George C. Pardee and Helen N. Pardee Professor of Economics and Political Science University of California, Berkeley *
