International Commercial Arbitration in the United States: Commentary & Materials, by Gary B. Born. Deventer and Boston: Kluwer Law and Taxation Publishers, 1994. Pp. 861 + appendices.
Gary B. Born is the co‑author (with David Westin) of the highly regarded International Civil Litigation in United States Courts: Commentary and Materials (2d ed. 1992). That book was a pathbreaker is two important ways. It was the first to offer a near‑comprehensive description and analysis of the practice of United States courts when international questions arise. Moreover, it combined the features of a treatise with those of a teaching book in one volume. Competing books have since appeared, some for practitioners and others for students. Born and Westin, however, continue to set the pace with their unique hybrid approach.
Born has now produced a companion volume on United States judicial practice in cases involving international commercial arbitration. Like its sibling, this volume offers a thorough and intelligent treatment of the field. Also like its sibling, it is both a treatise for practitioners and a teaching book for students. Happily, International Commercial Arbitration in the United States attains the same high level of craftsmanship as its predecessor.
Following a helpful introductory chapter, this book considers the arbitration proceedings (Chapter 2), choices of law in international arbitration (Chapter 3), enforcing and interpreting international arbitration agreements (Chapter 4), recognition and enforcement of international arbitration awards in the U.S. (Chapter 5), selection of arbitral situs by U.S. courts (Chapter 6), selection of arbitrators by U.S. courts (Chapter 7), provisional measures in arbitration (Chapter 8), and discovery and disclosure in international arbitration (Chapter 9).
