*Sovereign Investment: **Concerns and Policy Reactions, *edited by *Karl P.
Sauvant**, **Lisa E. Sachs**, and **Wouter P.F. Schmit Jongbloed (Oxford **
University* Press, 2012*).*

*Sovereign Investment: Concerns and Policy Reactions *provides the first
major holistic examination and interdisciplinary analysis of sovereign
wealth funds. These funds currently hold five trillion dollars' worth of
investments, almost twice the amount in all the hedge funds worldwide, and
could hold much more by 2015. In addition, state-owned enterprises 
another form of sovereign investment  play an important role in the flows
and stocks of foreign direct investment.


The rapid rise of sovereign wealth funds and state-owned enterprises
remains relatively unregulated, but the International Monetary Fund has
helped to establish voluntary rules to introduce transparency and
uniformity as regards sovereign wealth funds, and a number of countries
have strengthened their regulatory frameworks regarding sovereign
investment in general. What rules and procedures should govern sovereign
investment? What bodies should enforce them? Do the current  rules answer
the national security concerns of host countries? Focusing on the foreign
direct investment dimension of this issue, the editors of this volume, Karl
P. Sauvant, Lisa E. Sachs, and Wouter P.F. Schmit Jongbloed, address these
questions in a collection of essays by leading authorities from the IMF,
OECD, academic institutions, law firms, multinational enterprises, and
think tanks.
