Handbook of International Insurance: Between Global Dynamics and Local Contingencies analyzes key trends in the insurance industry in more than 15 important national insurance markets that represent over 90 percent of world insurance premiums. Well-known academics from Europe, the Americas and Asia examine their own national insurance markets, including the competitive structure, product and service innovations, and regulatory developments. The book provides academics and executives with an unprecedented range of information about today’s insurance markets.
This book also provides important 'new' information on the evolution of the financial sector worldwide and comprehensive chapters on reinsurance, Lloyd’s of London, alternative risk transfer, South and East Asian insurance markets, and European insurance markets. Setting the stage is an overview chapter by the editors focusing on overall conclusions on globalization.

THE HANDBOOK OF INTERNATIONAL INSURANCE
Gordon Stewart, President, Insurance Information Institute, New York, USA
"The globalization of insurance markets means that understanding both international developments and local trends around the world is now fundamental for insurance executives coping with today’s complex and competitive environment. By providing such a comprehensive picture of the world’s insurance markets, this unique and necessary book becomes an essential tool for anyone seeking to operate wisely and successfully.
Richard D. Phillips, Professor and Chairman, Department of Risk Management and Insurance, Georgia State University, Atlanta, USA
"Comprehensive surveys, written by international experts, provide in depth descriptions and discuss recent developments of the world’s major insurance markets. Each chapter contains essential insights for insurance executives and academic researchers interested in risk management and the globalization of insurance markets."
Patrick Liedtke, Secretary General and Managing Director, the Geneva Association, Switzerland
"This book depicts in an outstanding way the dichotomy of the insurance world today, which is still torn between global approaches and local solutions. Both insurance professionals and academics will profit enormously from its intelligent insights."
Raimond Maurer, Professor, Goethe-University Frankfurt, Germany
"In today's high competition environment, the understanding of international insurance markets is crucial to sustain an insurance company’s competitive advantage. This book makes a major contribution to that understanding."
