    'Professor Kern Alexander brings to this subject an exceptional array of talents, including law, economics and policy, on a grand and sweeping international and philosophical scale. He brings to the subject profound scholarship and a strong sense of pragmatic realities. Some have said that this topic has grown so vast and unmanageable over recent years that it is impossible for one person to cover the subject. Professor Kern has done just that with verve and insight: he has conquered the subject.' Philip R. Wood, Yorke Distinguished Visiting Fellow, University of Cambridge, and Queen Mary University, London

    'Professor Alexander’s Principles of Banking Regulation is a truly contemporary book, and will lead the field, highlighting issues such as sustainability, environmental protection and fintech, where finance surely can and must take a lead.' Sir William Blair

    'With breathtaking clarity and scope, Kern Alexander weaves institutional law, regulatory policy and even history into one concise volume covering a range of key jurisdictions.

Niamh Moloney, London School of Economics and Political Science

    'The most up-to-date inter-disciplinary textbook on European banking regulation. This book is a comprehensive guide for both introductory and advanced students to the banking regulation framework. A must read for students and policy makers!' Guillaume Sarrat de Tramezaigues, Institut d'Études Politiques de Paris

    'Essential reading for any student interested in the developments in the field in the aftermath of the global financial crisis. The contextual approach makes it appealing to the legal community, economists, financiers, political scientists as well as policy-makers.' Rosa Lastra, Queen Mary University of London
