Banks, Bankers, and Bankruptcies Under Crisis uses case studies of failed banks, banks that would have failed without taxpayer intervention, and in some cases banks obliged to merge under government pressure, to better understand global banking today. Using these case studies from around the world, including the United States, Britain, Germany, France, Italy and Japan, expert Dimitris N. Chorafas examines whether the Basel III new rules might have made a difference for the success of banks during the Great Recession.

Dimitris N. Chorafas has served on the faculty of the Catholic University of America and as Visiting Professor at Washington State University, George Washington University, University of Vermont, University of Florida, and Georgia Institute of Technology in the United States, as well as the University of Alberta, Canada; Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, Germany; École d'Études Industrielles at the University of Geneva; École Polytechnic Fédérale de Lausanne, Switzerland; the Polish Academy of Sciences; and the Russian Academy of Sciences. More than 8,000 banking, industrial, and government executives have participated in his seminars in the United States, England, Germany, Italy, other European countries, Asia, and Latin America. Chorafas is the author of 160 books, translated into several languages world-wide.
