  • The Need for Quality, Diverse Content for Academic, Government, and Corporate Researchers Project Finance in Theory and Practice, 2 nd Edition Designing, Structuring, and Financing Private and Public Projects Stefano Gatti ISBN: 978-0-12-391946-5 Pub Date: September 2012 This book presents comprehensive coverage of project finance in Europe and North America. The author provides a complete description of the ways a project finance deal can be organized- from industrial, legal, and financial standpoints-and the alternatives available for funding it. After reviewing recent advances in project finance theory, he provides illustrations and case studies. Level: Upper-division undergraduates and graduate students worldwide working in subjects studying the financing of large-scale single projects, usually called "project finance." These students are typically interested in working in the finance departments of large corporations or in structured finance departments of large commercial banks. International Money and Finance, 8th Edition Michael Melvin and Stefan C. Norrbin ISBN: 978-0-12-385247-2 Pub Date: October 2012 "This latest edition of the best-selling book discusses a number of important and somewhat complex concepts in international money and finance in a succinct, lucid yet analytical manner."-- Ramkishen S. Rajan, George Mason University and National University of Singapore Investment Banks, Hedge Funds, and Private Equity, 2 nd Edition David Stowell ISBN: 978-0-12-415820-7 Pub Date: August 2012 "Books on investment banking are few and far between and mostly out of date. Usually they are very academic or written by lawyers rather than by someone who understands the business. This one, written by a former practitioner, gives students of investment banking just the insights they need into the nexus of investment banking, private equity and hedge funds." --Brian Scott-Quinn, Chair in Investment Banking, ICMA Centre, Henley Business School, University of Reading Mergers, Acquisitions, and Other Restructuring Activities, 6th Edition Donald M. DePamphilis ISBN: 978-0-12-385485-8 Pub Date: August 2011 "After teaching M&A for ten years, I was relieved when last semester I finally switched to DePamphilis' text. His single book replaced numerous other sources that I had to use before. DePamphilis' academic rigor is combined with his deep personal experience as a deal maker, and thus the textbook is highly valuable to both newcomers and those being involved in transactions for many years. -- Viktoria Dalko, Global Professor of Finance, Harvard University Extension School Textbooks on ScienceDirect
