Mayntz, Renate (Hrsg.)
Crisis and Control: Institutional Change in Financial Market Regulation. Schriften aus dem Max-Planck-Institut für Gesellschaftsforschung, Band 75. Frankfurt a.M.: Campus Verlag, 2012.


In reaction to the international financial crisis of 2007, a network of social scientists from seven countries analyzed the various changes in the regulation of financial markets, and this book presents their results. The articles published herein show patterns of institutional change that were triggered by the economic crisis on different political levels, of their implementation and effectiveness, as well as their results. An indispensible tool for political scientists, Crisis and Control contributes significantly to the theory of institutional change.
