While focusing on international private law and international arbitration, the essays also address the questions of constitutional law and legal philosophy. State-of-the-art contributions, covering a wide scope from the practical analysis of American arbitration policy and the position of the USA vis-à-vis international law, through the latest developments in German legal practice, to theoretical issues of jurisdiction. Especially rich is the volume in exploring the legal dimension of the European integration process.

These scholarly legal texts are dedicated to Tibor Várady, in honor of his seventieth birthday. Várady is Professor at the Legal Studies Department of the Central European University in Budapest, and Chairman of the International Business Law Program. Member of the Hague Permanent Court of Arbitration, Várady served as Minister of Justice of Serbia in 1992-1993.
