About the book
Despite being one of the main pillars of the insurance industry, reinsurance is little known by the general public and is rarely the focus of academic study. In this book, the authors – economic historians and experts in the field from across Europe and Japan – seek to address this by shedding light on one of the most globalized of all economic activities. In a clear and engaging manner, they reveal the history of reinsurance in both national and international contexts, aiming to illuminate this vital, but often overlooked, aspect of insurance.
André Straus is Directeur de Recherche Émérite at CNRS and Professor at the University Paris 1 Panthéon Sorbonne. He specializes in financial and monetary history, and his recent research is mainly concerned with the history of insurance and reinsurance. He was the editor of the “Insurance and the World”, special issue of Entreprises et Histoire No. 72, for which he wrote an article on France: “La concentration des entreprises d’assurances en France depuis la Seconde Guerre mondiale: réalités et limites”.
Leonardo Caruana de las Cagigas is a Tenured Lecturer at the University of Granada. He co-authored Insurance History of Spain with Gabriel Tortella. His recent publications include “The Demutualization Process develops in Spain with Mapfre”, in Corporate Forms and Organizational Choice in International Insurance (Robin Pearson and Takau Yoneyama, eds., 2015) and “The Financing of Insurance Companies in Recent Years”, which he contributed to Entreprises et Histoire No. 72.

Diversity in the Setting up of Reinsurance
Reinsurance specifically differs from insurance in that the insurance market is related to the clients (mainly people, companies, etc.) and reinsurance is related to insurance companies or reinsurance companies with an essential need of financial capability. In addition, reinsurance helps to develop the insurance market in underdeveloped countries and its headquarters are normally located at the geographical hub of the financial market in those countries.
