Islamic Banking and Finance in South-East Asia by Angelo M Venardos has been a "must read" since its first edition in 2005 and has already been translated to Arabic.Now in its 3rd edition, the book offers important updates you can look forward to, starting with the foundations of Islamic banking, developments and issues. The reader is then treated to a timely survey of Islamic banking in five South-east Asian countries. Most of these chapters have been completely revamped from the last edition. One additional chapter has been added on Islamic Succession Planning, which introduces an increasingly essential aspect of Muslim life - that of managing one's wealth now and in the afterlife.Whether you are new to the topic or a practitioner in the industry, you will appreciate the accessible way in which the book is written. According to the Asian Journal of Comparative Law, the book gives a broad overview yet "manages to achieve this in a rather slim volume while providing depth of analysis at the same time".

MEDIA REVIEWS
The first book of its kind to lay bare the mystique surrounding Islamic banking and finance, this highly-regarded book has even attracted interest from a leading Islamic university in the Middle East, an extraordinary feat considering he is a relative outsider compared to the many Arabs who have commented on the topic. -- BusinessCraft "BusinessCraft"
This volume will be of value to anyone interested in the history, methods, and rules of Islamic finance in Southeast Asia. It is written by a non-Muslim who views the subject through a different prism, which makes the book unique. -- Choice "Choice"
The author has done an excellent job of taking the reader through a variety of linked elements as they relate to Islam, e.g., history, law, economic development, culture, finance, banking which have then been described within a variety of countries in the South-east Asian region. -- Charles F Steilen "Hawaii Pacific University, Honolulu"
Very well-written and informative The author succeeds where most writers on this subject fail. He has produced a balanced and well-written study, which at no point in the text slips into value judgement. In this sense, he sets a standard for future studies of this ever-changing field. -- Mamouda Mbemap "Editor, Journal of Restructuring Finance"
Readers will appreciate the accessible and readily comprehensible way in which the book is written. The author seeks to give a broad overview of the landscape of Islamic banking in Southeast Asia. To his credit, he manages to achieve this in a rather slim volume while providing depth of analysis at the same time. -- Asian Journal of Comparative Law "Asian Journal of Comparative Law"
It provides an excellent background, not only to the development of Shari'a banking principles, but also with reference to the history of Islam in South East Asia This is a much needed guide for those interested in the evolution of Islamic banking and finance in South East Asia. It outlines not only the intricacies of a technically complex area of the financial markets in this important region. -- Step Avanti "Step Avanti"
