Democracy: A Journal of Ideas
The Agenda - Politico
“Judge Knot penetrates the dense and tangled thicket of arbitration of disputes between companies and states around the world. It rejects facile critiques of these processes from the right and the left, offering instead a thoughtful and imaginative set of prescriptions for democratizing global trade and investment. Lawyers, judges and activists will find much interesting and original material.”
―Anne-Marie Slaughter, President and CEO, New America
“The world of international investment disputes may seem an obscure domain populated by narrow if upright lawyers speaking in esoteric languages. In this path-breaking work, Todd Tucker shows how it is actually where an epic power struggle is being fought between governments, corporations and citizens. If you want to understand the future of our economic world, you must read this book.”
―Ha-Joon Chang, Director, Centre of Development Studies, University of Cambridge, UK
“Lawyers, economists and lay people alike: read this book. Tucker’s lively narrative and crystal-clear explanations make buoyant a wonky subject matter. Deeply researched and well-sourced, Judge Knot: Politics and Development in International Investment Law is packed with fascinating case studies and insight into why the international law exists as it does today, and leavened by entertaining anecdotes. It may very well be the first book on international investment law that you can, in good faith, recommend to a friend.”
―Haley Edwards, Correspondent, Time; Author of Shadow Courts: The Tribunals That Rule Global Trade
