Book Review: Commercial Arbitrations as Governed by the Law of England, 26 Columbia Law Review 785 (1926)


This book is designed primarily to inform laymen concerning the English commercial arbitration system. It is a business man's manual on "so involved a subject as arbitration." It has its mission because: "the pitfalls which await the ignorant and unwary, be he claimant, respondent, arbitrator or umpire, are many and deep." In the words of an introduction by Sir W. Peters Rylands, President of the Federation of British Industries, 1919-1920, the author "throws a beam of light upon the many and great complexities that surround the subject" of commercial arbitration in England.
