Managing Risk in the Financial System makes important and timely contributions to our knowledge and understanding of banking law, financial institution restructuring and related considerations, through the production of an innovative, international and interdisciplinary set of contributions which link together the law and policy issues surrounding systemic risk and crisis management. The recent financial crisis has exposed both the banking industry and financial system safety-net players in many countries to a considerable level of distress as well as economic and reputational damage. These circumstances have heightened the need for policymakers to consider remedial measures under a broad umbrella that encompasses inter alia prompt corrective actions, early closure of distressed entities, deposit insurance, bail-outs, state-aid, bank resolution and restructuring techniques. These essays provide an important contribution to research in this area, at a crucial time in the debate around the future financial industry. This unique and detailed volume should be of considerable interest to students of law, economics and finance, law practitioners and policymakers in central banks and ministries of finance. Law, business and finance faculties will benefit from having this book in their collections, as will deposit protection agencies and regulatory agencies.

MEDIA REVIEWS
`Managing Risk in the Financial System offers fresh and essential reading on the Global Financial Crisis. The coverage is unique in its scope - offering a close examination of fundamental concepts such as the nature of systemic risk; consideration of the impact of systemic crisis on both private institutions and national governments; and critique of popular reform proposals such as living wills, resolution funds and capital adequacy. Contributors to this volume are internationally recognized experts who offer sharp assessments of both the causes of the crisis and the proposed reforms.' -- Heidi Mandanis Schooner, Columbus School of Law, US
`Incisive, authoritative and thoughtful, this important and timely collection of papers exploring the unresolved issues left by the recent global financial turmoil, will undoubtedly shape the policy responses to come. Interdisciplinary in approach and wide-ranging in jurisdictional scope, it draws together influential commentators, practitioners and regulators, to create a new milestone in the search for the fundamentals of a more stable global financial system.' -- Eva Lomnicka, King's College London, UK
`This book contains a large number of chapters, nearly 30 in all, by acknowledged experts on various aspects of the recent financial crisis. Whichever aspect of this crisis may interest you, such as bank taxes, deposit insurance, TBTF and how to respond, cross-border issues, and many, many others, you will find chapters that are both authoritative and stimulating in this collection. The editors are to be congratulated not only on their selection of authors but also on the speed with which they have taken them from conference presentation to book chapter.' -- Charles Goodhart, London School of Economics, UK
