It was quite difficult to find a good book on international financial markets/managements. Since it inevitably involves the concepts such as forward/swap, exchange rate risks, interest parity, balance of payments, and so on, a good book needs to have some rigor in clearly explaining important concepts (a good intro for Ph.Ds) and to contain good introduction to how international financial markets work in reality (wonderful reference for MBAs). I had an opportunity to read an earlier draft of this book when I took International finance course a few years ago taught by Professor Hodrick himself. The draft did a superb job in explaining the theories and international financial markets at the same time. I'm really glad this has been finally published so that other people outside his classrooms have access to these materials. I got hold of this book today and it seems it's been more polished than the draft I had. I wish the solution manual could come out together, but I heard it's on the way. --By H.
