Excerpt

This book is designed to help the reader understand the environment and modus operandi of multinational banks, with the focus on policy- and concept-oriented issues in the arena of international banking. It fills what I feel is a pressing need in international business curricula. Each chapter addresses the theory and practice of international banking. the contents are suitable for the practitioner as well as M.B.A. and advanced undergraduate students. However, a basic knowledge of international finance and economics is presumed.

The subject's broad scope adds interest but creates problems. There is a long menu of topics that may be included in a book of this nature. the difficulty of selecting what to include is especially acute for professors who are structuring college-level courses in international banking. This volume takes an approach that is both narrow and broad--the former in the sense of focusing only on important macro-policy issues and key international concepts, the latter in the sense of covering about twelve major subject areas.

One final comment on content should be mentioned. Most books dealing with contemporary issues are vulnerable to the possibility of events overtaking them. Today's issues become tomorrow's history. An attempt is made to reduce this problem by including selections of topics that are relatively timeless.

Comments and reviews at various stages of the book's development have improved its coverage and organization. I am particularly grateful to Mohit Sudhakar and Nitin Kapila for their painstaking efforts and useful suggestions regarding content.

This book owes much to many people. Any deficiencies in style or substance are the sole responsibility of the author.
