The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) today announced the release of a comprehensive annotated bibliography on deposit insurance works covering the period 1989 to 1999. The publication is intended as a reference tool for researchers, policymakers and practitioners.

Deposit Insurance: An Annotated Bibliography 1989-1999 contains abstracts for over 700 books, journal articles, working papers, doctoral dissertations, conference proceedings, congressional hearings, and government and international agency reports-nearly every work on deposit insurance published between 1989 and 1999. To be included in the bibliography, a substantial portion of the work had to focus on deposit insurance.

Titles in the bibliography are arranged in chapters reflecting subject areas that received particular attention in the deposit insurance literature. Among the areas covered are: Designing and Establishing Deposit Insurance Systems, the Pricing and Valuation of Deposit Insurance, Deposit Insurance Reform, and the Economics of Deposit Insurance. Most of the abstracts are paraphrases of the original authors' own descriptions of their works, and provide users with sufficient information to determine an entry's relevance.

Copies of the bibliography are now available from the FDIC's Public Information Center, 801 17th Street, NW, Washington, DC 20434; telephone (703) 562-2200 or (800) 276-6003; e-mail: The publication will also soon be accessible from the FDIC's Web site at in both printable and searchable formats.
