Product Description


'fascinating book, which represents a scholarly and original contribution to the growing body of literature on financial services regulation....this is certainly a book worth reading for students, scholars and practitioners within financial services regulation, as it will not date and lose relevance..as the regulatory system evolves into it's next stage and eyt more rules and forms of rule use emerge, the lessons of this book and the true value of the approach it takes may become even clearer.'

it is a refreshing book that addresses the question of 'self-regulation' in a new way. This is the power of Julia Black's marvellous and insightful work ... Black's book is not about the Internet; her subject matter is drawn far from the problems of regulating code on the World Wide Web. But her approach, and her conclusions, are exceptionally valuable to anyone drawn to this siren of 'self-regulation' ... Rules have a life in the story that Black tells that is far richer and infinitely more subtle than the lawyer's typical take on the stuff of rules. There is much to admire in this relatively short book. It is outstanding in its execution, and impressive in the range it represents. (Lawrence Lessig, Modern Law Review, Sept 1999)

This book provides a valuable theoretical underpinning to financial services regulation.

Format: Hardcover
There are few academic publications dealing with financial services regulations in the UK. This book makes a useful contribution to an industry that is changing from regulation by rule to regulation by principle

Outstanding 26 Feb 2010
By D. Carvalho - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Prof. Julia Black brilliantly presents the recent evolution of English financial law, framing the rights and wrongs of financial regulators on the path to the current regulatory environment of financial and banking matters in the country.
The solid theoretical basis makes the book mandatory for students and researchers of banking and financial regulation.
