Banking regulation continues to confound the idea that views about how banks should be regulated will eventually settle down to an orthodoxy broadly accepted throughout the world. This edition covers 37 countries and territories in addition to our usual chapters on international initiatives and the European Union. There must be a feeling among many of the authors that banking regulation is a subject that will never settle down; that it will never return to being the rather duller subject that it was before it became a political issue more than 10 years ago.
