Kern Alexander, Rahul Dhumale, John Eatwell
Global Governance Of Financial Systems: The International Regulation Of Systemic Risk, Oxford University Press, 2006.

K1066.A9154 2006

This book analyses the current international legal and regulatory framework for controlling systemic risk in global financial markets. It suggests that current efforts at international regulation are inefficient, fragmented, and lack political legitimacy. The current structure of international financial regulation fails to manage systemic risk in an efficient manner that promotes adequate economic growth and political accountability amongst nations. This book sets forth the economic rationale for international financial regulation and what role, if any, international regulation can play in more effectively managing systemic risk and providing more accountability for states subject to such regulation

 

 

J. Samuel Walker
Three Mile Island: A Nuclear Crisis In Historical Perspective, University of California Press, 2004.

TK1345.H37W35 2004  

Twenty-five years ago, Hollywood released The China Syndrome, featuring Jane Fonda and Michael Douglas as a TV news crew who witness what appears to be a serious accident at a nuclear power plant. In a spectacular coincidence, on March 28, 1979, less than two weeks after the movie came out, the worst accident in the history of commercial nuclear power in the United States occurred at Three Mile Island. For five days, amid growing alarm, the citizens of central Pennsylvania -- and the entire world -- followed the efforts of authorities to prevent the crippled plant from spewing dangerous quantities of radiation into the environment. This book is the first comprehensive account of the causes, context, and consequences of the Three Mile Island crisis. J. Samuel Walker captures the high human drama surrounding the accident, sets it in the context of the intensely polarized debate over nuclear power in the 1970s, and analyzes the social, technical, and political issues the accident raised. His book will clear misconceptions held to this day about Three Mile Island.

The heart of Walker's narrative is a moment-by-moment account of the accident itself, in which he brings to life the figures who dealt with the emergency: representatives of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, the state of Pennsylvania, and the White House, and a cast of scientists and reporters. Walker also looks at the accident's aftermath in the area surrounding Three Mile Island, including studies of the long-term health effects of the incident. Three Mile Island is a fascinating window onto the politics of nuclear power and an authoritative account of a critical event in recent American history.
