Editorial Reviews

"The third edition of International Chamber of Commerce Arbitration is a treatise that should be used as a practice manual by every lawyer interested in the arbitration of all types of business or commercial disputes as an effective process of dispute resolution. In view of the present importanceof arbitration in solving all types of business or commercial disputes, the International Chamber of Commerce Arbitration is an indispensable volume for any lawyer interested in the arbitration of business disputes. The value of the third edition of International Chamber of Commerce Arbitration isenhanced by its clarity, thoroughness, numerous appendices and tables and its Rules." Edward D. Re, Chief judge Emeritus of the United States Court of International Trade, New York Law Journal"This leading textbook on ICC Arbitration gets better and better with each edition. Although the 1998 ICC Arbitration Rules allegedly made the second edition of this work 'obsolete, ' that does not give full faith and credit to the wealth of information and learning in the third edition. A veryrecent, global survey of users of arbitration has resulted in overwhelming desire for 'a fair and just result.' Indeed, the statistics showed that factor as being twice as important as the next one in priority. The learned authors of this splendid textbook are of a similar view. They recognise the'sheer professional quality of the arbitrators who preside ICC tribunals.' They acknowledge that they are 'generally well-known and respected international jurists.' They conclude that 'therefore, there is wide acceptance that ICC arbitral decisions generally do justice on the merits (albeit somepartiesmay often feel that they should have fared better).'John Dorter, Building and Construction Law"W. Lawrence Craig, William W. Park and Jan Paulsson have updated their definitive work on a major institution of international arbitration, the International Chamber of Commerce Court of Arbitration. The book is now an invaluable guide to practices applicable to international arbitration and isespecially indispensable for those involved in International Chamber of Commerce arbitrations. The book should also be useful to those who draft international contracts or need to include an International Chamber of Commerce arbitration clause in an agreement. Because so many internationalcontracts have International Chamber of Commerce arbitration clauses, the book should be very useful to those who negotiate such contracts. From it, they can discern not only the procedures that are specific to the International Chamber of Commerce, but also the administrative costs.Richard M.
