Editorial Reviews

Review

"[T]he Santander experience is worth reading about and Building a Global Bank offers an excellent opportunity to do so. In addition to archival materials and secondary sources, the authors draw extensively on myriad interviews with financial industry leaders, policymakers, and journalists. In doing so, they write for a general audience and offer an accessible and data-rich institutional history, complete with a detailed . . . chronology of the bank's evolution and several citation-filled pages of endnotes."--Joseph M. Santos, EH.net

"Guillén and Tschoegl provide an astute analysis of the management style and organizational structure of Santander, focusing on their strategy for internationalization."--Alan M. Rugman, Administrative Science Quarterly

"Guillen and Tschoegl have written a well-researched case study."--Jose L. Garcfa-Ruiz, Bankhistorische

From the Back Cover

"Guillén and Tschoegl have a solid grasp of the dynamics of global banking and critically integrate the Santander story into that framework. Santander has had successes and missteps, and will have more of both in the years ahead. This book will leave the reader with an unrivalled observation platform to watch developments as they unfold."--Ingo Walter, New York University

"This book tells the story of Banco Santander, one of the most spectacular successes in recent banking history. It makes significant empirical and analytical contributions to the theory of the firm, because it shows how a rather original type of organization can be uniquely nimble and efficient. There is no other comprehensive study of Banco Santander in English or Spanish."--Gabriel Tortella, Universidad de Alcalá

Format: Hardcover
It is well written and comprehensive. I have used it as part of a research on global banking. The book is detailed enough and it links very well to theoretical frameworks on global/international banking. It met my expectations.
