    This important Research Handbook series presents high quality, original reference works that cover a range of subjects within the evolving field of financial law.

Under the general editorship of Rosa Lastra, these Research Handbooks are edited by leading scholars in their respective fields, and comprise specially commissioned contributions from distinguished academics, who critically, innovatively and substantially analyze a wide range of current issues in financial law. Each of the individual Research Handbooks is a definitive reference work, essential for both scholars of financial law as well as for practicing lawyers. The comprehensive coverage and thorough examinations of the significant topics and ideas in financial law signify the Research Handbooks’ position as authoritative and scholarly information resources.

  5. Research Handbook on Central Banking

    Research Handbook on Central Banking

    Edited by Peter Conti-Brown, Rosa M. Lastra
    Central banks occupy a unique space in their national governments and in the global economy. The study of central banking however, has too often been dominated by an abstract theoretical approach that fails to grasp central banks’ institutional nuances. This comprehensive and insightful Handbook, takes a wider angle on central banks and central banking, focusing on the institutions of central banking. By 'institutions', Peter Conti-Brown and Rosa Lastra refer to the laws, traditions, norms, and rules used to structure central bank organisations. The Research Handbook on Central Banking’s institutional approach is one of the most interdisciplinary efforts to consider its topic, and includes chapters from leading and rising central bankers, economists, lawyers, legal scholars, political scientists, historians, and others.

They discuss, in eight parts, the nature and characteristics of economic and financial crime, the enterprise of crime, business crime, the financial sector at risk, fraud, corruption, the proceeds of financial and economic crime, and enforcement and control.
