Abstract

BOOK REVIEW Arbitration with the Arab Countries, Abdul Hamid El-Ahdab, 1158 p., Kluwer Law and Taxation Publishers, 1990, $153; Dfl 260. The great benefit of arbitration is that it is private and not generally subject to interference from or supervision by sovereign courts. It suits commerce, especially within trading groups, and has a sound basis in Arab tradition. Better to solve differences amicably and privately rather than discordantly and in public. How therefore does this book assist? Indeed, how does one define the Arab world? The very definition of the Arab world is still open to debate, as it has been for hundreds of years. Does one take membership of the Arab League as a starting point? Is Islam as the national religion a pre-requisite? Once a particular jurisdiction has been identified as Arab, can any of the lessons or rules learnt in other Arab jurisdictions be applied, and if so, to what extent? Does a ruling in one country bind parties in another? In reality, the Arab world varies enormously. A glance at the map of the world will show Arab countries from the Atlantic to the Indian Ocean, from the harsh deserts of the Sahara to
