This title endeavours to repair the long-standing problem of updating the official text of the Federal Arbitration Act (FAA). In this book, Thomas E. Carbonneau proposes to transform the FAA into a genuine national law of arbitration, based exclusively on the federal rules applicable to arbitration. He argues for necessary change in the federal law of arbitration that will not only benefit commercial interests and the US economy, but also provide protection for smaller individual interests, such as consumers and employees.

A companion to Carbonneau on International Arbitration: Collected Essays, the essays in this volume represent the majority of the author's scholarly writings on the topic of U.S. arbitration law. They reflect his three decades of experience as a law professor and as the Editor-in-Chief of the World Arbitration & Mediation Report (renamed Review) and the Journal of American Arbitration. Each one tackles an aspect of the debate about the role of arbitral adjudication in contemporary American society and provides an assessment of the evolution and content of the U.S. law of arbitration. In particular, Carbonneau on Arbitration: Collected Essays examines the work of the U.S. Supreme Court in arbitration and provides a critical, but balanced, assessment of that decisional law. The chapters of this volume represent the majority of the author's scholarly writings on international commercial arbitration over thirty years. The chapters address various major issues and themes of transborder arbitration law, including (1) the importance of courts in developing and maintaining a legal culture that is hospitable to arbitration, (2) arbitration as a complete legal system, (3) the increasing use of arbitration to resolve political or mixed political and commercial disputes, and (4) the “judicialization” of arbitration. Some of the chapters are of a recent vintage, while others were written a decade or two ago. Whatever their date of production, these essays are of continuing interest to practitioners in and scholars of the field.

Arbitration is an essential component in business. In an age when transparency is a maxim, important issues which the laws governing arbitration currently fail to address are the extent to which disclosure of information can be constrained by private agreement along with the extent to which the duty to preserve confidentiality can be stretched. Absent a coherent legal framework and extensive qualitative and quantitative data, it is equally difficult to suggest and predict future directions. This book offers a tool for attaining centralised access to otherwise fragmentary and dispersed material, as well as a comprehensive analysis and detailed exposition of the position in relation to confidentiality in arbitration in the jurisdictions of England, USA, France and Germany.
