Since Smadar Ottolenghi first published her detailed analysis of Israel's new arbitration law in 1970, she has remained the unrivalled interpreter of arbitration law in her country, and a tireless theorist of improved arbitral procedure. Virtually every Israeli judgement with regard to arbitration in the last thirty years has drawn on her definitive Hebrew treatise, ""Arbitration: Law and Procedure"", which has been revised and extended twice, in 1980 and again in 1990.;This book is Professor Ottolenghi's own English adaptation of her peerless work, and is in fact the most up-to-date edition, as it includes references to hundreds of judgements and other developments that have occurred in the ten years since the publication of the most recent (third) Hebrew edition. Anyone with the need or opportunity to arbitrate in Israel should find all the details they need, including expert guidance on such important substantive and procedural matters as the following: phrasing the arbitration clause; matters in rem; sole arbitration versus party arbitration; successors to arbitration agreements; settlement of labour disputes under arbitral agreements; The court's involvement in arbitration proceedings; responsibility for arbitrator's remuneration; limitations upon the arbitrator's powers; setting aside an arbitrator's award; effect of international conventions; and enforcement of foreign arbitral awards.;To enhance communication between English-speaking readers - lawyers, arbitrators, and other professionals and business people who should find this book immensely useful - and their Israeli correspondents, the paragraph numbering in this edition is identical with that of the third Hebrew Edition. Detailed indexes should add greatly to the book's usefulness by making it easy to find material through several different avenues.
