The second edition of Gary Born’s International Commercial Arbitration is an authoritative 3,750 page treatise, in three volumes, providing the most complete available commentary and analysis on all aspects of the international commercial arbitration process.

The first edition of International Commercial Arbitration is widely acknowledged as the preeminent commentary in the field. It was awarded the 2011 Certificate of Merit by the American Society of International Law and was voted the “International Dispute Resolution Book of the Year” by the Oil, Gas, Mining and Infrastructure Dispute Management list serve. The first edition has been extensively cited in national court decisions and arbitral awards around the world.

The treatise comprehensively examines the law and practice of contemporary international commercial arbitration, thoroughly explicating all relevant international conventions, national arbitration statutes and institutional arbitration rules. It focusses on both international instruments and national law provisions in all leading jurisdictions. Practitioners, academics, clients, institutions and other users of international commercial arbitration will find clear and authoritative guidance in this work.
