> This edited volume offers a new and original approach to the study of
> technological change in retail finance. Documenting developments in the US
> alongside case studies from  Mexico and Western Europe, Technological
> Innovation in Retail Finance addresses the variety of financial institutions
> that populated the markets for retail finance. It offers a massive research
> base reflecting not only breadth of contributor interests, but also a unity
> of purpose that comes from several workshops and comments on each other's
> work.
> Technological innovation had a major role in the shaping and developing of
> administrative procedures, routines, and capabilities in organizations
> offering retail financial services. Indeed, with the exception of
> contemporary case studies for the UK, the current ‘state of the art’ in the
> study of the computerization of financial services from an historical
> perspective is overwhelmingly focused on developments in the USA. This
> volume overcomes the usual bias towards the so called ‘Atlantic continuity’
> in the understanding of technological change related to applications of
> information and telecommunication technologies (ICT) by offering a number of
> sources of distinctiveness. It shows when and how technological change
> altered the competitive intensity in the markets for retail finance.
