Shim,Dr. Young
This work presents a critical analysis and evaluation of the Korean banking regulatory and supervisory system. It identifies the continuing structural weaknesses of the system, which were thrown into sharp relief by the 1997 financial crisis, and focuses on the need for reform in order to achieve financial stability. The study centres around three central questions: who should be the regulator; what substantive standards of supervision should be applied; and administratively, in what manner should these standards be applied? The author argues that the Korean banking system, characterized as a "governmental control system" for credit allocation, should be released from undue governmental and political interference, thus allowing the involvement of banks in commercially oriented practices without exposure to the significant risks incurred by governmental policy directed lending. The author calls for a high degree of transparency and accountability, for a clear, realistic timetable for restructuring, and for an effective exit policy for troubled commercial banks. This text should be of value to practitioners, researchers and academics working in the field of banking law, particularly those with a special interest in the Asia-Pacific region. 226pp.

Ottolenghi, Smadar
Since Smadar Ottolenghi first published her detailed analysis of Israel's new arbitration law in 1970, she has remained the unrivalled interpreter of arbitration law in her country, and a tireless theorist of improved arbitral procedure. Virtually every Israeli judgement with regard to arbitration in the last thirty years has drawn on her definitive Hebrew treatise, "Arbitration: Law and Procedure", which has been revised and extended twice, in 1980 and again in 1990. This book is Professor Ottolenghi's own English adaptation of her peerless work, and is in fact the most up-to-date edition, as it includes references to hundreds of judgements and other developments that have occurred in the ten years since the publication of the most recent (third) Hebrew edition. Anyone with the need or opportunity to arbitrate in Israel should find all the details they need, including expert guidance on such important substantive and procedural matters as the following: phrasing the arbitration clause; matters in rem; sole arbitration versus party arbitration; successors to arbitration agreements; settlement of labour disputes under arbitral agreements; The court's involvement in arbitration proceedings; responsibility for arbitrator's remuneration; limitations upon the arbitrator's powers; setting aside an arbitrator's award; effect of international conventions; and enforcement of foreign arbitral awards. To enhance communication between English-speaking readers - lawyers, arbitrators, and other professionals and business people who should find this book immensely useful - and their Israeli correspondents, the paragraph numbering in this edition is identical with that of the third Hebrew Edition. Detailed indexes should add greatly to the book's usefulness by making it easy to find material through several different avenues. 563pp.

O'Flaherty, M; and Gisvold, G. (Editors)
The war in Bosnia and Herzegovina was characterized by human rights abuses on a scale not seen in Europe since World War II. It is not then surprising that the Dayton Agreement, together with related texts and agreements, lays out what is probably the most ambitious human rights protection regime ever included within an international peace settlement. The peace agreement imports myriad substantive guarantees for the protection of every category of human rights, including some through a novel application of the European Convention on Human Rights. The provisions are accompanied by a highly complex system for both monitoring and enforcement of their implementation. These enforcement procedures contain temporary elements, such as international field operations, and an array of tribunals and institutions intended to be permanent. The present volume is a contribution to the process of interpreting and assessing the post-Dayton human rights regime in Bosnia and Herzegovina. The analysis of the contributing human rights scholars and practitioners is located within the contexts of the immediate reality and needs of Bosnia and Herzegovina and the systemic significance of the peace agreement for other post-conflict and complex emergency situations worldwide. 333pp.
