Rudolf Dolzer and Christoph Schreuer Principles of International Investment Law

Oxford University Press, 2008

K3830.D65 2008

 

This book outlines the principles behind the international law of foreign investment, focusing on the law governed by bilateral and multilateral investment treaties. It traces the purpose, context and evolution of the clauses and provisions characteristic of contemporary investment treaties, and analyzes the case law interpreting the issues raised by standard clauses. In addition, it introduces the dispute settlement mechanisms for enforcing investment law, outlining the operation of State vs. State and Investor vs. State arbitration.

 

Kenneth S. Abraham

The Liability Century : Insurance and Tort Law from the Progressive Era to 9/11

Harvard University Press, 2008

KF1250.A714 2008

 

The author explores the development and interdependency of the tort liability regime and the insurance system in the United States. Abraham says liability insurers have come to dominate tort litigation. They defend lawsuits against their policyholders, and they decide which cases to settle, fight, or appeal. Abraham argues that today the tort liability and insurance systems constantly interact, and any reform requires understanding both.
