The progressive financial deregulation, following the abolishment ofthe Bretton Woods System in the early 1970s, changed the use and the configuration of technologies in the organizational contexts of finance.Information systems and financial engineering have led to an unprecedented reinvention of the business of banking. Written by experts from the social studies of finance, information systems specialists, and historians and sociologists of technology, this book explains why the management and the regulation of financial organizations, especially in periods of crises with systemic consequences, requires an understanding of the complex techno-organizational landscapes which emerged from this evolution. It shows the interconnection between the difficulty of overcoming the financial and operational risks we are facing, and the global webs of organizational and technological complexity
