Its effect in particular on the entire field of international business transactions is incalculable. Accordingly, the more a practitioner knows about its use, scope, and interpretation, the better. And no single work provides more direct and succinct insights into the body of UNCITRAL rules and notes surrounding the Model Law than this important work'now in its Second Edition'by the acknowledged 'father of international commercial arbitration,' Pieter Sanders.Central to this new edition is a focus on the ongoing revision of the Model Law on Arbitration, including reports on what has been achieved so far and detailed discussion of ten topics for revisions to be addressed in the future.
