Critical Acclaim
‘This work is probably one of the most readable and comprehensive texts on international arbitration that I have personally come across. Its coverage is wide-ranging and yet organised in a simple logical manner. The authors have done a marvellous task in distilling complex judicial decisions into bite-size learning points. I commend this work to all students and any practitioner eager to get a strong grasp of the subject before entering the international arbitration arena.’
– Lawrence Boo, The Arbitration Chambers and National University of Singapore, Singapore

‘The topical issues of modern arbitration in slightly more than 200 pages, explained to show the different approaches available in the main jurisdictions. Combining a practical perspective and a solid theoretical basis, this book is going to be extremely valuable for students and practitioners.’
