While there have been innumerable collections of humour in the courts, this is the first anthology of over 80 stories about disputes resolved without the aid of litigation. It reveals rich sources from old and new China, ancient Greece, Rome, Aesop's fables, medieval England and French vaudeville, as well as Shakespeare, Chaucer, the romantic novel and Stravinsky as arbitrator. What may surprise many is the role that women have played as arbitrators since history began.

Subjects:
Legal History, General Interest
Contents:
Without the law
a family affair
gods, goddesses and heroes
women and arbitration
the sorrows and rewards of the arbitrator
unhappy parties
language traps
umpires
arbitration on the stage.
