The various developments and changes in the field of arbitration, coupled with the large sums and important issues which are so often at stake in them, mean that a new book providing a comprehensive overview on the topic from an authoritative source is not merely very welcome: it is positively needed by professionals involved in arbitration and their clients. It is hard to think of an organisation better qualified to sponsor such a book than the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators, with its enormous experience and authority in the field. It is also hard to conceive of a more impressive and well qualified group of contributors to such a book than the list of people who Julio César Betancourt and Jason A. Crook have included in this volume.
