Editorial Reviews


The book provides an extraordinarily clear overview of the main conceptions of international arbitration and their various practical consequences. A reading is therefore highly recommended for all arbitration practitioners --P. Lalive, L ordre public transnational et l arbitre international, in Liber Fausto Pocar, 2009, p. 601, at pp. 599-611 (in French)

In the best French tradition of private international law scholarship, Professor Gaillard undertakes an intellectual tour de force which demonstrates that the law of international arbitration cannot properly be understood without reflection on its philosophical underpinnings and, vice versa, that different philosophical conceptions of the law of international arbitration are not without practical implications --V. Heiskanen, Commentary of E. Gaillard, Aspects philosophiques du droit de l arbitrage international, in EJIL 20/2009, p. 942, at pp. 942-947

On all these points, Emmanuel Gaillard s book bears witness to his vast experience and exceptional comparative knowledge, as well as incorporating abundant and contemporary material, which, once again, makes it literally indispensable reading for all international arbitration practitioners --P. Lalive, Aspects philosophiques du droit de l arbitrage international, in ASA Bull. 4/2008 (December), p. 704, at pp. 700-704 (in French)

This book develops a real legal theory of international arbitration, showing and comparing the three main points of view about it, in a clear and deep explanation. Simply great.
