About the book:

The Federal Civil Procedure Manual is a comprehensive guide to procedural law in federal courts. It provides a thorough discussion of jurisdictional issues, a section on arbitration as an alternative dispute procedure, and updated references to very recent case law.

Review:

“The three authors, all steeped in the drafting and practical application of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, have produced the latest guide to federal civil practice. In clear, brisk prose, they explain the logic and boundaries of the Rules, informed by their years of participation in the federal rulemaking process. This is a readable, easily searched, and authoritative addition to the practitioner’s library.” (Chilton Varner, Partner, King & Spalding)
