`With these two volumes Cameron has produced an excellent collection of established essays on the role of banks in the financing of industrial development. As with other collections in the series (The International Library of Macroeconomic and Financial History) the success lies in bringing together articles from a variety of sources into a readily accessible form. . . . these in total constitute an authoritative and extremely stimulating collection.' -- Michael Collins, Business History
`The great utility of the two volumes is that these essential pieces are conveniently brought together between hard, durable covers. . .' -- P.J. Cottrell, The Economic History Review
