About the Author

Jan Paulsson holds the Michael Klein Distinguished Scholar Chair at the University of Miami School of Law, and frequently acts as advocate or arbitrator in international disputes. For 20 years, he headed the international arbitration and public international law groups at the law firm Freshfields.


Regardless of whether it is characterized as theoretical or practical, if the measure of any book is whether it is rigorous in approach, illuminates its subject with fresh ideas, and compels you to re-examine what you took for granted, then this gracefully written book is exemplary ... it is analytical and rigorous in its approach, rather than anecdotal and platitudinous ... I highly recommend this important book. It is destined to be read and deliberated over for many years to come. * John Fellas, Arbitration International *
