This edition does include post-2008 crisis content, although Dodd-Frank is still unfolding so don't expect current regulatory code, etc. Great history and primer on financial regulation.
who is this book intended for?

This book is not near current enough in its scope of laws and regulations ( despite this edition is 2009!). Im not who this book intended for, hopefully not would be or practicing lawyers or bankers. The fact it goes into archaic philosophy at the very beginning should tell you that this book will disappoint. Nowhere in this book is Charles (Chuck) Prince mentioned who had much to do w/ the procreational of The Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act of 1999 with his powerplays; which is the most single important act since probably the FDIC improvement Act of 91. West Law should forget the weak history lesson and get to the on nitty gritty on bank law, if it needs to fill pages it can add the theoretical "why" to these laws....but for the low price of $23, you get what you pay for. Dont cheat yourself on bank laws, you are only hurting yourself. I would recommend this to a college senior unsure if they want to study bank/securities law in law school, this may give them an idea if tis for them or not.

This book is an excellent source. Lovett traces the development of the current trends in banking and financial law, beginning with the First Bank of the U.S. The book also explains how banking law evolved with respect to the existing economic and political climate. Buy this book! There is no better synopsis of banking/financial law.
Could be much better.

Needs to be much more nuts and boltsy, and less soft survey like. As an example, doesn't even define what makes a bank regulatable as a bank -- one of the most basic issues in banking law.
