"Banking Law in the United States remains the most accessible "point of entry" resource for the
wide scope of banking law. From chartering banks to closing them and everything in between, this is an invaluable primary resource. This work places practitioners, researchers and financial services personnel within easy reach of legal concepts and court decisions from international to the domestic and from unique banking statutes to criminal rules of general applicability."
