""This is now the first place for the international lawyer to go when confronting a new problem of relations between States and foreign investors. The subtitle — "Substantive Principles" — is important. Much interesting literature has been produced on investment arbitration as a process, but here is an attempt to derive the normative cores of the rapid output of awards during the last decade. The result is all the more valuable because the authors aim for accuracy, not conversion."
" - Jan Paulsson, Head of International Arbitration and Public International Law, Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer; President, London Court of International Arbitration
""This is an impressive analysis of the principles of international law and practice developing from the growing body of arbitral awards dealing with investor-state disputes. It provides a finely constructed explanation of the current state of investment law as applied by these tribunals, striking a well-judged balance between scholarly and practical discussion. It is a particularly welcome addition to my library."
