Many valuable print resources exist for beginning ICA research. International Commercial Arbitration by Gary Born is a two-volume set comprising an extensive overview and introduction to ICA as well as containing arbitral awards, articles, and treaties. The Principles and Practice of International Commercial Arbitration by Margaret L. Moses provides ICA practice points such as drafting an arbitration agreement, requesting judicial assistance, and enforcing arbitration awards. The Handbook on International Arbitration and ADR, published by the American Arbitration Association, addresses various longstanding and contemporary ICA issues and covers a wide array of topics. International Commercial Arbitration is a looseleaf containing conventions, arbitral associations, and rules and enactments from selected countries. Several current event publications are available in print form, such as the ICC International Court of Arbitration Bulletin and Mealey's International Arbitration Report, which both regularly publish ICA updates and news. Books on specific aspects of ICA include Evaluation of Damages in International Arbitration, which addresses the difficulties parties face in assessing and calculating the amount of recoverable damages, and Private Dispute Resolution in International Business: Negotiation, Mediation, and Arbitration, a two-volume set putting the reader in the middle of various real-world arbitration disputes, and providing questions and answers for self-evaluation.
Other useful books are Comparison of International Arbitration Rules, which provides a detailed chart comparing the provisions of leading sets of ICA rules, and National Arbitration Laws, which allows a reader to tab a specific country, arbitration court, or institution, and read histories and descriptions of that entity.
