This book is intended to give an overview of selected banking laws in Europe, North America and South East Asia and to point out the extensive interrelations between international banking laws and international accounting harmonization.

The banking laws of Germany, Austria, Canada, the United States of America, Thailand, Singapore and the Philippines are discussed in details and a comprehensive introduction to the laws of the seven central banks as well as to the respective national banking and financial industry is given.

Besides this, the book will underline the complexity of each banking law by referring to banking supervision legislation, other financial institutions of each country and in particular stress the interrelations between the banking law and bank accounting.

This book received the Austrian Banker's Association's Walther Kastner Award 2006.

Keywords: international banking law, financial institutions, laws of central banks, commercial banking laws, banking supervision, bank accounting, harmonisation of international banking laws.

Kammel's book on international banking does much the same work for bankers as the Rosetta Stone did for philologists. […] After carefully parsing his discussion, I enthusiastically recommend his analysis as a thorough and accurate introduction to the U.S. banking system. [...] Kammel's book should be a cornerstone for any comparative law library.

Armin J. Kammel's much-anticipated review of The Law of International Banking Institutions – A Comparative Analysis is a remarkable achievement of both fact-finding scholarship and analysis. This comprehensive overview of the seven laws and accounting systems captured in this book makes it useful for jurisprudential as well as practical reading. It is highly recommended as it attributes its standing to a sound and progressive financial system. To this rapport, Kammel successfully makes serious arguments for policy makers facing challenges of today's globalization effects, academics and practitioners alike. This book is truly a lasting contribution.
