Mr. Crossick and Ms. Lindsay have collaborated to produce an analytical work entitled European Banking Law. The analysis is composed of four main sections: banking, credit, capital movement, and securities. Each section contains a description of the applicable major laws and regulations in the countries of the European Economic Community (EEC) as well as Portugal and Spain, and includes a summary of the relevant EEC directives and their supporting studies. On the whole, the authors' product is successful and useful, particularly in describing the EEC's attempts to accomplish the difficult task of harmonizing and coordinating banking and financial laws within the Community.
