Editors Crossfield,Anne and Heemann,Manfred
As the transnational character of banking and finance activities becomes ever more pronounced, there is a clear need for lawyers in the field to become conversant with pertinent legal developments in national jurisdictions other than their own. This book takes a major step towards fulfilling that need. It not only provides essential orientation in the banking law of nine countries in which international financial business is commonly transacted, but also offers experienced, high-quality insights into developments and trends in each of these jurisdictions. With origins in the discussions of the Banking and Finance Commission of the International Association of Young Lawyers (AIJA), this work examines the main areas of banking and finance law across a broad spectrum of areas of law from project finance to financial services regulation. Most of the chapters were originally presented as papers at a conference on "Managing Banking Risks and Combating Fraud" which was jointly organised by IBC and AIJA in London in March 1998. These papers have been updated for inclusion in this work, with the addition of a General Report and a new paper on the United States which takes into account the new Financial Services and Modernization Act (FSMA). Each chapter follows a predetermined outline, so the reader can easily make a comparative analysis across the countries covered. 270pp.

Valentine, Rebecca and Thompson, Travis
Perry A Burgess was many things: Diarist, Pioneer, Prospector, Banker, Investor, Inventor - the list is long and varied. His name appears in numerous historical works published since the 1950s, yet much of his story has never been told. In 1866 he travelled to Montana with his uncles and 300 head of cattle up the Bloody Bozeman Trail during Sioux Chief Red Cloud's War. A pioneer of Colorado and one of the earliest settlers of Steamboat Springs, Burgess was a long-time friend and partner of some of the wealthiest businessmen in the nineteenth-century American West. Amongst them, his uncle Lewis Cheney, was one of the richest men in Boulder, Colorado. Together they developed the city's banking system while contributing to its cultural and social heritage. Raised Mormon, as boys they fell victim to rampant persecution, and Perry's own father died on the Mormon Trail during the exodus to Utah. For Burgess, those early years of a nomadic existence would leave their mark and nurture in him a thirst for adventure, influencing his path to the end of his life. Using Perry's diaries, family photographs, and newly discovered personal essays published in the Steamboat Pilot as their focus, Valentine and Thompson piece together the life of a remarkable man and his family, whose adventurous spirit was matched only by their willingness to risk all for the unknown. "Beyond the Land of Gold" provides an integral and heretofore missing piece of the history of the American Western Frontier and a snapshot into the life of one of its most intriguing characters. 528pp.
