The Routledge Companion to Banking Regulation and Reform provides a prestigious cutting edge international reference work offering students, researchers and policy makers a comprehensive guide to the paradigm shift in banking studies since the historic financial crisis in 2007. The transformation in banking over the last two decades has not been authoritatively and critically analysed by the mainstream academic literature. This unique collection brings together a multi-disciplinary group of leading authorities in the field to analyse and investigate post-crisis regulation and reform. Representing the wide spectrum of non-mainstream economics and finance, topics range widely from financial innovation to misconduct in banking, varieties of Eurozone banking to reforming dysfunctional global banking as well as topical issues such as off-shore financial centres, Libor fixing, corporate governance and the Dodd-Frank Act. Bringing together an authoritative range of international experts and perspectives, this invaluable body of heterodox research work provides a comprehensive compendium for researchers and academics of banking and finance as well as regulators and policy makers concerned with the global impact of financial institutions.

This fully revised and updated second edition of The Oxford Handbook of Comparative Law provides a wide-ranging and diverse critical survey of comparative law at the beginning of the twenty-first century. It summarizes and evaluates a discipline that is time-honoured but not easily understood in all its dimensions. In the current era of globalization, this discipline is more relevant than ever, both on the academic and on the practical level. The Handbook is divided into three main sections. Section I surveys how comparative law has developed and where it stands today in various parts of the world. This includes not only traditional model jurisdictions, such as France, Germany, and the United States, but also other regions like Eastern Europe, East Asia, and Latin America. Section II then discusses the major approaches to comparative law - its methods, goals, and its relationship with other fields, such as legal history, economics, and linguistics. Finally, section III deals with the status of comparative studies in over a dozen subject matter areas, including the major categories of private, economic, public, and criminal law. The Handbook contains forty-eight chapters written by experts from around the world. The aim of each chapter is to provide an accessible, original, and critical account of the current state of comparative law in its respective area which will help to shape the agenda in the years to come. Each chapter also includes a short bibliography referencing the definitive works in the field.

Now accompanied by a Teacher's Manual for the first time, RACE, RACISM, AND AMERICAN LAW, Fourth Edition, is a penetrating and provocative analysis of the role of race in American law and society by the noted author and the originator of critical race theory. This scrupulously revised casebook now offers: an appendix of lightly edited historical and contemporary cases for instructors who prefer a fuller case treatment expanded coverage that includes Latino and Asian minorities commentary on the Supreme Court's conception of a 'color-blind' society and its effects on voting, employment, and affirmative action discussion of Professor Lani Guinier's views on proportional representation consideration of the disproportionately high percentage of blacks and Hispanics in American prisons an examination of the role of the media in propagating societal fear of minorities new cases in employment discrimination analysis of the impact of the technological age on workers with minimal skills Bell uses a wide range of materials to convey important points: Interdisciplinary excerpts from historical, sociological, and psychological publications provide comprehensive coverage of all aspects of the subject. In each chapter, creative hypothetical exercises in consciousness-raising help students realize the insidious nature and complex consequences of racism in the United States. Seminal cases from the annals of history show the relevance of past events to contemporary race relations. Original critical race theory supplies essential perspective while allowing students to reach their own conclusions. If you haven't already used Derrick Bell's pioneering casebook, this all-new edition and its helpful Teacher's Manual will make you want to reconsider. Repeat users will be able to revitalize their presentation through the updated, expanded content and new Appendix of cases that still preserve the distinctive character of the book.

Challenging students to question the political and philosophical assumptions underlying the law, Education Law, Policy, and Practice promotes a depth of understanding about the key cases and statutes. The authors integrate the law with policy and practice, following related political, financial, and practical issues. The law is presented through a teachable mix of key cases and materials on the practice and political aspects of school law, and an effective macro organization helps place topics into an integrated framework. Each of the major issues in education law is discussed at length: the boundaries of public and private, church and state, relations; school governance and the tensions between federal power and local control; the rights and responsibilities of students and teachers; and the educational environment and its liabilities. “Practicums” in each section allow students to apply the law to realistic situations. Features: New cases: Endrew F. v. Douglas County School District; Fisher v. the University of Texas. A complete description and analysis of the brand new Every Student Succeeds Act of 2015. A series of key questions and answers that follow each major section, and are designed to provide formative and summative assessments of student learning outcomes.
