Book Review: Encyclopedia of Finance
Click to Print This Page
This book is a valuable resource for those in need of a quick definition or formula as well as a vehicle for those wishing to dig more deeply into any of a wide range of topics. New in this edition are 200 definitions, 24 articles, and four derivations.
The 2,400 definitions in the Encyclopedia of Finance, edited by Cheng-Few Lee, a distinguished professor of finance at Rutgers University, and Alice C. Lee, a vice president of finance at State Street Corporation, could stand alone as a valuable reference for both practitioners and academics. Lee and Lee, however, have taken a more ambitious approach than simply providing definitions for common finance terminology. They have also included in the volume 74 papers by well-respected academics and practitioners, as well as derivations of a number of important formulas.
