From the Back Cover:

An insider's look at how companies structure, value, and financelarge capital investments.

From the Chad-Cameroon Pipeline to Poland's A2 Motorway,Modern Project Finance: A Casebook provides abehind-the-scenes look at this dynamic and increasingly importantfield. Author Benjamin Esty (of Harvard Business School) presentsdetailed description and analysis of some of the most notableprojects in the past five years. By studying these projects, youwill gain important insights into the practice of projectfinance.

Critically acclaimed in the classroom and in the field!“I wish this book (and Ben Esty's course) had been availablewhen I first started working in project finance. It contains manythings it took me years to learn as a project finance practitioner.Project finance has become a big business and is an importantmethod of financing economic development throughout the world, butthere has been very little in the way of academic theory andresearch on project finance. Until now, that is, with Ben Esty'scourse. He has broken new ground in the rigor of his analysis, ingathering empirical data, in exploring why companie s use projectfinance and why bankers engage in it, and in analyzing projectcapital structures, how project loans should be priced, and whysome projects fail.” –Chris Beale,Managing Director and Global Head of Project & StructuredTrade Finance, Citigroup.

“Professor Esty is the preeminent scholar in the study oflarge projects, and this book is an outstanding introduction to thefield of project finance. It provides a framework of theoreticalcoherence and practical insight that reflects the reality ofexperience. This exciting and important book is a majorcontribution to the understanding and teaching of projectfinance.” –Jay Worenklein, Chairman andCEO of U.S. Power Generating Company, and former Head of ProjectFinance at Milbank Tweed and SociétéGénéral.

“Through these case studies and his careful documentationof institutional details in both developed and developing countrysettings, Esty has provided an extremely valuable service to thefinance profession. He opens up this important field and correctlyargues that understanding the many and complex reasons why projectfinance is so widely used informs the general theory of corporatefinance, governance, and organizational theory in important ways.His analysis and arguments that there is no simple, singleexplanation for the success of project finance, and that projectfinance can dramatically reduce a wide variety of agency costs seemright on the money.” –Michael C. Jensen ,Jesse Isidor Straus Professor (Emeritus), Harvard BusinessSchool, and Managing Director of the Organizational StrategyPractice, Monitor Co.

“For people interested in project finance or how financeworks in emerging markets, I highly recommend this book. These casestudies provide lessons not available in traditional financetextbooks, and they do it in very interesting (and real)situations. Having taught these cases, I believe they providestudents and finance practitioners with frameworks to analyze thestructure of and rationale for various financing decisions made indeveloping countries.”–Campbell Harvey, J.Paul Sticht Professor of International Business, Fuqua School ofBusiness, Duke University.
