Islamic Finance is a compilation of selected writings of Dr Venkataraman Sundararajan (1945-2010), an international policy maker who played a significant role in the development of the regulatory and supervisory frameworks and policy for Islamic finance. Spanning more than a decade of his thoughts on Islamic finance, this book provides both basic and advanced knowledge on the field. The papers in this collection define Islamic finance, outline its many complexities, and provide practical recommendations that can help it in becoming an important global financial intermediary. The book demonstrate not only Dr Sundararajan's long-standing commitment to helping develop Islamic banking, but also how Islamic finance itself has evolved rapidly between 1998 and 2010. The chapters in this book are a blend that would benefit lay readers as well as experts and policy makers at regional and international levels.
