'an immensely valuable book that no law library should be without...the scholarly community is greatly in this author's debt. We look forward to a new and final edition after the Tribunal is finally wound up.'
'a scholarly but practical insight into the work of the Tribunal...The author also provides a balanced perspective - highlighting both the pluses and minuses on the balance sheet of this prominent institution...this text is timely and a virtually indispensable adjunct to libraries and any international arbitration practice collection focusing on the host of issues spawned by the claims against Iran resluting from the so-called "Iranian Hostage Crisis" of 1979-1980.'
'The book makes accessible a gold-mine of jurisprudence. Even those familiar with the decisions in case as such as Starrett (on expropriation) and A18 (on dual nationality) are likely to be astonished by the wealth and the sophistication of the judgements.'
'The presentation of the tribunal's jurisprudence is exemplary; each chapter is sensibly divided, many extensive quotations from judgements are set out, and the volume is well indexed, so that it is remarkably easy to find what one wants... it is one of the handful of truly essential books published in recent years.'
'This is an outstanding work, prepared and published with a degree of care and scholarly craftsmanship which matches the immense importance of its subject matter... a text of first resort for practitioners and scholars alike.'
'be of interest of anyone interested in the tumultuous course of US-Iranian relations since the revolution...Although this book is primarily intended for the professional arbitration lawyer, and provides legal students with a guided analysis of the court's voluminous published decisions, its insight into a little known facet of Iranian-US relations will be welcome to a wider audience.'
