International Commercial Arbitration An Asia-Pacific Perspective by Simon Greenberg, Christopher Kee, J. Romesh Weeramantry

There has been an exponential rise in the use of ICA for resolving international business disputes, yet international arbitration is a scarcely regulated, specialty industry. International Commercial Arbitration: An Asia Pacific Perspective is the first book to explain ICA topic by topic with an Asia Pacific focus. Written for students and practising lawyers alike, this authoritative book covers the principles of ICA thoroughly and comparatively. For each issue it utilises academic writings from Asia, Europe and elsewhere, and draws on examples of legislation, arbitration procedural rules and case law from the major Asian jurisdictions. Each principle is explained with a simple statement before proceeding to more technical, theoretical or comparative content. Real-world scenarios are employed to demonstrate actual application to practice. International Commercial Arbitration is an invaluable resource that provides unique insight into real arbitral practice specific to the Asia Pacific region, within a global context.


'This publication provides an excellent advanced introduction to key concepts as well as more controversial topics in international commercial arbitration... All legal practitioners in Australia dealing with cross-border business - surely by now a large proportion of practitioners - should have a copy. It is also the perfect textbook for the many advanced courses in international commercial arbitration now provided by Australian universities and arbitral institutions. Australian Law Journal '... the authors Greenberg, Kee and Weeramantry of International Commercial Arbitration: An Asia Pacific Perspective are to be congratulated on the publication of their excellent text, which is an outstanding introduction to the field of international commercial arbitration ... It goes without saying, anyone who is interested in or practises in the area, should have a copy in their library'. Alex Baykitch, The ACICA News 'A third merit of the book is that it is highly readable and therefore attractive to lawyers who are experienced in international commerce but neophytes to arbitration, and to students who are taking their first steps into international commercial arbitration ... Whilst aimed particularly at an Asia-Pacific readership, this book is an invaluable addition to the bookshelves of all who are interested in international commercial arbitration, wherever in the world they may practise or study.. Asian Dispute Review '... while there are several practitioners'
guides to specific Asia

-Pacific jurisdictions, no single book addresses the region in a subject by subject text book style. This is what the authors have set out to achieve, and if I may say so, have done so most efficiently ... In summary, this is a major work. I confidently expect that it will become an authoritative text on international commercial arbitration in the Asia-Pacific region, and that like other renowned works there will be future editions to come.
Australasian Dispute Resolution Journal

'This is a unique book. ... There are other books which have covered the arbitration laws of Asia-Pacific countries, but this is the first book to approach international commercial arbitration on a thematic, rather than a country by country, basis. In short, ideal for students and indispensable for practitioners (at least to know what your opponent and the Tribunal will be reading).'
Michael Hwang, Transnational Dispute Management

'After reading all 504 pages plus appendices of the work, I was perplexed. Why did I enjoy this book when I was already familiar with its basic subject matter ...? The answer was that the book, ... is a unique contribution to the field of international commercial arbitration; not merely Asia-Pacific regional commercial arbitration. ... International Commercial Arbitration: An Asia-Pacific Perspective will now be one of those often cited books.'
Khory McCormick, Proctor

'There are many international commercial arbitration textbooks on the market, catering to readers of all levels, serving a variety of purposes. This volume, the latest entry into this rather crowded market, stands out because of its rather ambitious scope and theme ... What distinguishes this book from other comparable publications is the in-depths discussions of each subject.'
