Biegman, Niek
To date, Nicolaas (Niek) Biegman has published nine photo books, all concerned with people: in the streets of Amsterdam, New York, Egypt and Haiti, performing Sufi rituals in Egypt, Macedonia, Kosovo, Bosnia and Syria, oil wrestling in Macedonia and the painter Rein Dool. His work has been exhibited in Aleppo, Amsterdam, Cairo, Paris, Rotterdam, Skopje and Zagreb. This tenth book is the result of four years of walking and cycling around Amsterdam's streets and canals while mainly looking upward. Up there are the gables topped with exuberant wigs that are the trade mark of the city. The stone wigs contain the main living elements to be found in these photos: gods, dolphins, dogs, and lions. Additionally, the houses themselves show a human face to whoever wishes to see it. Biegman presents them as parts of the urban landscape, which attracts millions of visitors from all over the world, every year. Eventually, the visitors go home again. This book may help them to remember Amsterdam's peculiar architecture along with the canals and the streets where they discovered it. 133pp. N.B. Slight crease to spine edge of front cover.

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.
