Interest Rate Risk in the Banking Book, written by industry expert Paul Newson, provides a thorough guide to the new regulatory requirements surrounding IRRBB and demonstrates the importance of good governance.The author explains the nature of interest rate risks in simple language, describing the methods typically used to measure them, with the added advantage of many worked examples. He explores the various strengths and weaknesses of each in order to come up with suggestions as to what constitutes best practice.The book is essential reading for all those involved with interest rate risk in the banking book but particularly those working in a bank ALM function who wish to gain a wider appreciation of the context in which they operate, more generalist and senior bankers who need a grasp of the fundamentals and those working in a trading risk function who wish to understand how market risk in a banking book can differ from that in a trading book.The BCBS published its final standards on Interest Rate Risk in the Banking Book (IRRBB) in April 2016, with guidelines set to be implemented by 2018. As a result, institutions are now in the process of finding ways to comply with impending regulations whilst seeing what the most effective ways of calculating, and minimising, risk are. The industry must take into account more extensive guidance on the IRRBB management process and enhanced disclosure requirements to promote greater transparency.This book is thorough examination of the nature of interest rate risk and other market risks in the banking book, how they are measured and controlled, and why they need to be treated differently from similar risks in the trading book.

Post-Conflict Archaeology and Cultural Heritage: Rebuilding Knowledge, Memory and Community from War-Damaged Material Culture
The human cost in any conflict is of course the first care in terms of the reduction, if not the elimination of damage. However, the destruction of archaeology and heritage as a consequence of civil and international wars is also of major concern, and the irreversible loss of monuments and sites through conflict has been increasingly discussed and documented in recent years. Post-Conflict Archaeology and Cultural Heritage draws together a series of papers from archaeological and heritage professionals seeking positive, pragmatic and practical ways to deal with conflict-damaged sites. For instance, by showing that conflict-damaged cultural heritage and archaeological sites are a valuable resource rather than an inevitable casualty of war, and suggesting that archaeologists use their skills and knowledge to bring communities together, giving them ownership of, and identification with, their cultural heritage. The book is a mixture of the discussion of problems, suggested planning solutions and case studies for both archaeologists and heritage managers. It will be of interest to heritage professionals, archaeologists and anyone working with post-conflict communities, as well as anthropology, archaeology, and heritage academics and their students at a range of levels.
