In an increasingly competitive market for information on international arbitration, the updated and expanded second edition of Concise International Arbitration stands out as a short, direct guide of manageable size that focuses on answering the essential questions that inevitably arise. The reality of international arbitration practice is that practitioners often work in an array of jurisdictions, under differing rules and different conventions. Therefore, rather than focusing on the rules of a particular institution, a particular country, or a particular convention, the article-by-article commentary in Concise International Arbitration offers the reader a swift understanding of all provisions of the leading arbitration instruments.
Concise International Arbitration is part of Kluwer Law International’s ‘Concise’ series. These publications have proven enormously valuable to busy practitioners who require a succinct, accessible and authoritative commentary on the most commonly-used instruments, unencumbered by dense legal argument. Each book in the series breaks down the relevant texts by article and by each paragraph of the article, followed by one or more notes. The intention is to give the reader a rapid appreciation of the meaning and effect of each provision and to point in the right direction should further information (e.g., case law) be needed.
As a reliable, quick-reference tool in situations where the reader is not closely familiar with, or needs to be reminded of the effect of a particular legal provision and how it relates to other provisions, Concise International Arbitration is unmatched. It will be greatly appreciated by courts, arbitrators, counsel to arbitration, attorneys, in-house lawyers, arbitration institutions, and academics.
