Olson, G.N.
The close of the 20th century saw a remarkably high incidence of bank distress and insolvency. This book seeks to identify the causes of this ongoing financial crisis and to draw lessons for the future, with the aim of assisting developed, transition and emerging economies alike to better cope with future crises. "Banks in Distress" takes as its focus the major financial system crisis experienced by the US in the 1980s, reviewing the evolution of the US banking system and the legislative, regulatory, and monetary policies of the 1980s which set the stage for the crises that followed. The author argues that the financial difficulties in the US, and to some extent the rest of the world, were largely precipitated and exacerbated by government intervention into the American domestic economy through uncoordinated monetary and fiscal policy, as well as the uncoordinated enactment of regulatory, supervisory and enforcement legislation and policy. The book in particular examines the importance of asset valuation, asset value inflation and deflation, and capital adequacy for banking and financial services organizations, an understanding of which is crucial to the development of a coherent regulatory framework. The author considers what can be learned from the US experience and suggests the need for significant changes in the banking law and policy of most developed and emerging economies, arguing that a stable and workable financial system requires transparent, co-ordinated and proactive governmental policies in the banking, fiscal, monetary and national economic areas. 335pp.

Cook, Judith
This biography tells the story of a woman who lived totally outside the conventions of her time, Mary Bryant, a Cornish fisherman's daughter turned highway robber. Sentenced to hang in 1786, she was instead transported to Australia, from where she made a daring escape, only to be recaptured and brought back to London chained to the ship's deck in an open cage. Imprisoned in Newgate, and again threatened with death, her cause was championed by James Boswell, who was so taken by her that he defended her at her trial, winning her first a reprieve and then a full pardon. May Bryant's life reads like romantic fiction, yet this quietly spoken woman from a respectable home, who was not considered conventionally attractive, lived more dangerously than any fictitious heroine. Judith Cook has pieced together her life from various sources, including Boswell's diaries and archive material in Australia, Holland and the United States.256pp.
