Professor Damanpour provides a unique insight into international finance and banking. Often books of this nature are either too theoretical or quantitative in nature. This book is a blend of both areas and thus becomes a useful tool ...I would recommend this book to anyone involved in international business irrespective of their specialized interest. Brian A. Reynolds, Ph.D. Director, Center for International Business National College of Education This groundbreaking study analyzes the rapid growth of foreign banking activity in the United States over the course of the past two decades and evaluates the potential impact of this development on United States banking institutions. The author brings together a substantial amount of information and data not previously available in one source to examine both the overall status of foreign banks in the United States and the structural components of international banks and lending institutions. Unlike those who see the influx of foreign banking in strictly negative terms, Damanpour demonstrates some positive aspects of the situation including the contribution of foreign banks to general improvement in the U.S. economy, increased competition in the banking industry, the provision of a flow of capital into U. S. balance of payments capital accounts, and the introduction of innovative techniques and pricing structures. Damanpour begins by tracing the evolution of foreign banking and the financial goals of key players. He goes on to illustrate the institutional structure of international banking, detailing the types of foreign banking offices that have been established in this country. Subsequent chapters address the legal environment of foreign banking, international financial markets, U.S. international lending institutions, and such issues as the motivation behind international banking market structure and activities of foreign banks and major foreign banking concerns in the United States. The final chapters look at developments in international trade and banking and assess the impact of foreign banks and their future prospects. Written in a style accessible to both students and practitioners, this is an excellent text for courses in international finance, business, and political science programs as well as an important source of background information for members of the banking community concerned with developing appropriate responses to the increased foreign presence on the U.S. banking scene. Numerous tables enhance the text.
