As an aside, I should emphasize that we have no intention of using this blog as a vehicle to promote Kluwer publications to the exclusion of the important works of other publishers. The point of the blog is to emphasize significant developments in the field of international arbitration, regardless of the source. Indeed, our next book discussion will focus on a recent book from another publisher. (If you have ideas about books worthy of discussion in the near future please email me.) But we thought the celebration of Gary Born’s magnum opus was a fitting way to introduce the idea of a book discussion to our readers. Welcome!
