The City Reviews


An up-to-date overview of the City's role as a financial centre has been missing for too long. Roberts's book fills the gap admirably and will become the standard work of reference. It also makes a very good read, with some trenchant comment on City scandals as well as a welcome historical perspective. -- John Plender * Financial Times *
an authoritative and comprehensive guide to the UK's financial system. -- Philip Coggan * Financial Times *
