Fraser, Jim
Mississippi is well known for its rich soil and plantation mansions, but the bluffs and prairies of its eastern boundary are often overlooked. Here, Jim Fraiser takes a deeper look at those historical gems of eastern Mississippi and its Coast. From Pascagoula to Tupelo, and Jackson too, the beauty of Mississippi's historic homes shines through Rick Guy's stunning photography. With each house pictured, readers learn interesting tidbits about the history of the home, the surrounding area, and the owners (or former owners). For those who love architecture, this book will be a wonderful addition to their collections. Several styles are covered, from the elegant Greek Revival of Waverly in West Point to the Colonial Revival style of Ballymere in Pass Christian. Spanning nearly one hundred years, from the mid-nineteenth century to the early twentieth century, this book has everything. The fantastic images of authentic era refurbishing, interior settings, and antebellum designs portray the influence of the different cultures that collided in the South. From the first page to the last, excellent photography and enthusiastic writing combine to make this a smart selection.96pp.

Zhou, Zhongfei
This work conducts a critical examination of Chinese foreign banking law in the context of the international convergence of supervisory standards and practices. If China is to develop a modern and viable banking sector, it needs to put in place a suitable legal infrastructure which is consistent with emerging international supervisory standards, WTO requirements and aspirations for financial sector liberalization. The author argues that the current foreign banking laws are fundamentally out of line with international standards and practices in a number of respects and that legislators and supervisors do not at present appreciate or cultivate commonly accepted supervisory values. The author therefore proposes a set of reforms that would at the same time create a legal environment for competitive equality between foreign banks and protect the safety and soundness of the Chinese banking system. The issues considered include the licensing process for the entry of foreign banks into the Chinese market, the ongoing regulation of foreign banks and foreign bank crisis management or bank failure resolution. The author offers a proposed framework of Chinese foreign banking law which should be of great benefit to existing and prospective foreign banks in China. 241pp.

Ceplair, Larry
Sarah Moore Grimke and Angelina Emily Grimke were the first women in America coming from a southern slave-holding family to speak publicly on behalf of the abolition of slavery. Creating a stir of controversy soon afterwards during the 1830s especially with the force of their testimony before the Massachusetts State Legislature, they soon found themselves defending publicly and at length the right of women to speak on moral and political issues and on the end of the subordination of women. The editor of this collection of eloquent political writings, Larry Ceplair, has written a critical introduction situating the Grimkes' in an historical and political context in which he describes the significance of their thought and work. Of special interest is the inclusion of writings documenting the Grimke sisters activities that preceded by 11 years the first woman's rights convention in America, held at Seneca Falls, N.Y. 380pp. N.B.
