What is arbitration? This volume provides a novel theoretical examination of the concept of arbitration, attempting to answer fundamental questions which have rarely been addressed systematically in English. It explores the place of arbitration in the legal process, offering a challenging, yet accessible overview of the field and its theoretical underpinnings and contending that arbitration is important enough to be understood in its own terms, as a sui generis feature of social life.
Why do individuals, companies, and States choose to go to arbitration rather than through litigation? Arbitration can offer increased flexibility and confidentiality, and provides the parties with the opportunity to select the arbitrators. But what makes them want to confide in an arbitrator rather than use the more traditional legal mechanisms for settling disputes?
This volume explores what the parties can expect of an arbitrator and whether and how the conduct of an arbitrator might be questioned and under what authority. It examines the ethical challenges to arbitral authority and its moral hazards, evaluating the promises and dangers of self-contained systems of decision-making and compliance.

"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
