‘The genius of the Manual’s plan is that it is entirely practical, laying out the foundations and mechanics of various dispute-resolution frameworks, explaining the relevant tribunals and arbitration organisations, and illustrating the application of these to specific types of disputes. This is a very sound approach.’

Sandra Day O’Connor, Retired Justice of the US Supreme Court

‘The Manual is impressive in the sheer breadth of subject matter discussed. Its balance of concision with sufficiency of detail makes it a primer on all the major international dispute resolution mechanisms and organisations at work in the world today.’

Asian Dispute Review, April 2008

‘This is an excellent book, which more than fulfils the author's aim. His clearly defined structure, economy and clarity of language make this an extremely useful weapon in the practitioner's armoury.’

The International Journal of Arbitration, Mediation and Dispute Management, Vol. 73 No. 4, November 2007

‘The Manual is a useful practical tool and competent source for public servants, as well as businessmen, lawyers, leaders, and students new to international dispute resolution.’
