Paterson, Lachy
This book illuminates the whole colonial discourse between Maori and Pakeha as it appeared in the Maori-language newspapers during a critical period in New Zealand history. In 1855, the Maori world was changing. Many Maori took part in the market economy, most had become Christian, many could read and write, some had sold land to the settler government. The government expected these trends to continue. Ultimately, Maori and European would become the iwi kotahi - one people. The government disseminated this message to Maori in its newspaper "Te Karere Maori". There were other newspapers, most importantly the rival Maori government the Kingitanga's "Te Hokioi". And while these newspapers were used for propaganda, they provided a forum, with many Maori and some Pakeha debating the issues of the day.252pp.

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.
