Deborah DeMasi and Kenneth Weiner coauthored the recently published book entitled International Project Financing (4th edition), an analysis of project finance principles, as well as specific risk and contract assessment, that form the basis of project finance transactions. The book also identifies key project and financing documents that are typically utilized in project finance transactions, and includes chapters addressing unique issues involved in procuring project financing for specific types of infrastructure projects. The fourth edition includes extensively revised and updated material and continues to represent the leading reference work on the subject.
