From the Inside Flap
Highly recommended to professionals, risk managers and students in risk management who look for a relevant comprehensive view of how risk management expands and evolves towards greater sophistication.
Alain Canac, former Senior Credit Officer at Banque Paribas and IXIS Corporate & Investment Bank
The recent global financial crisis has highlighted the need for all participants in the banking system to understand and intelligently utilize risk management. Updated and expanded, the new edition of Bessis s Risk Management in Banking is the best overall guide to the concepts and tools needed to avoid the next banking crisis. Bessis reveals his roots as both academic and practitioner by his combination of intellectual rigor and pragmatic application. Concisely integrating a wide body of work within a comprehensive analytic framework, the careful exposition as well as practical illustrations will be appreciated by students and bankers alike. Highly recommended!
Stephen Kealhofer, Managing Principal, Research at Diversified Credit Investments
Risk Management in Banking has been a constant companion in my work. Over my career I have developed three different corporate risk management programs and have found Dr. Bessis writing to be highly valuable and especially practical. This updated edition expands greatly on previous volumes and benefits from recent international experiences which have greatly challenged some approaches to the understanding of risk. It is essential reading for those managing risks in today s complex banking environment.

It also contains a particularly good and concise discussion on the financial crisis.
Some more details in PV01 could be useful, at least for the department I'm working on.
