The Iran-United States Claims Tribunal is the most important source of international arbitral decisions for at least the past half century, and its decisions have contributed significantly to the development of international law and the law of international commercial transactions. JudgeAldrich, who is the only member of the Tribunal to have served since its inception in 1981, has written what will be recognised as the definitive book about the jurisprudence of the Tribunal. The book seeks to preserve and to make accessible the substantial body of Awards and Decisions rendered by the Tribunal during the years since it was established in. Its hundreds of Awards and Decisions may be individually consulted (there are twenty-sevenvolumes so far) but hitherto there has been no detailed analytical guide through the vast published work of the Tribunal. This important new book provides a two-fold service. First, it quotes from the most significant Awards and Decisions at sufficient length so that both their substance and thereasoning of the Tribunal can be understood from access to the present volume alone. Second, it organizes and summarizes the decisions to facilitate finding complete texts relevant to any particular issue.
George H. Aldrich is a Judge in the Iran-US Tribunal.

Editorial Reviews

'be of interest of anyone interested in the tumultuous course of US-Iranian relations since the revolution...Although this book is primarily intended for the professional arbitration lawyer, and provides legal students with a guided analysis of the court's voluminous published decisions, itsinsight into a little known facet of Iranian-US relations will be welcome to a wider audience.'
