AAA Handbook on Commercial Arbitration by Thomas E. Carbonneau, Jeanette A. Jaeggi
The AAA Handbook on Commercial Arbitration assembles from the Dispute Resolution Journal - the flagship publication of the American Arbitration Association - and other sources, the leading professional writing in areas in which arbitration is likely to apply. The Handbook on Commercial Arbitration is succinct, comprehensive and a practical introduction to the use of arbitration in various fields, written by leading practitioners and scholars. It provides essential orientation and is a "must" for anyone with an interest in the field of arbitration. The Handbook also addresses various contemporary problems in arbitration law - such as the use of class action arbitration, the awarding of punitive damages in arbitration, and the selection of arbitrators and mediators.
The Handbook contains recent important articles written by authors who are recognized specialists in that area. Often the authors have both national and international reputations. The contributions cover a wide array of topics that are of substantial interest in the field and provide analytically thorough, professional, and practical answers to problems that have emerged in the field.
The articles were selected from an extensive body of writings and, in the main, represent world-class assessments of arbitration practice. All the major facets of the field are addressed. The articles provide the reader with comprehensive and accurate information, lucid evaluations, and an indication of future developments. They not only acquaint, but also ground the reader in the field.
