The Oxford Handbook of Banking provides an overview and analysis of research in banking. The book aims to strike a balance between abstract theory, empirical analysis, and practitioner and policy-related material and is split into five parts. Part I, The Theory of Banking, examines the role of banks in the wider financial system, why banks exist, how they function, and their legal and governance structures. Part II, Regulatory and Policy Perspectives, discusses monetary policy, prudential regulation and supervision, and antitrust policy. Part III deals with bank performance. A number of issues are assessed including efficiency, financial innovation and technological change, globalization and ability to deliver small business, consumer, and mortgage lending services. Part IV provides an overview of macroeconomic perspectives in banking. This part of the book includes a discussion of the determinants of bank failures and crises, and the impact on financial stability, institutional development, and economic growth. Part V, International Differences in Banking Structures and Environments, examines banking systems in the United States, Western Europe, Transition countries, Latin America, Japan, and the Developing Nations of Asia.

Keywords: bank structure; bank function; bank governance; monetary policy; prudential regulation; bank supervision; antitrust policy; bank performance; financial innovation; technological change
