"Bilateral Investment Treaties," which has been prepared under the auspices of the International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes, examines BIT provisions, particular emphasis being placed on treatment, expropriation and the settlement of disputes. Dolzer and Stevens show that a great degree of uniformity exists in modern investment treaties and thus clearly establish that the significance of these treaties lies not only in the extensive network of rights and obligations of their respective parties; equally important is the contribution of these treaties to an emerging international acceptance of common standards for the treatment of foreign investment. This book presents all the elements of modern BITs and explains what the main problems are. Based on research that has never been published elsewhere, it offers a valuable contribution to the understanding of an area of international law that is currently undergoing tremendous change.' From the "Preface" by Ibrahim F.I. Shihata.
