Please discuss the nuances between Pernod/Arak/Ouzo

I am seldom on this board, so apologies if my search was unsuccessful.

I was at a Chow-gathering recently and we were discussing the COTM results for Jerusalem. One recipe, chicken with clementines and fennel, calls for arak but lists the other two as acceptable substitutions. I inquired if anyone could address how the three differed and the pluses/minuses between them. No one was able to. ( I must say I opted for the ouzo largely because it was cheapest. I was pleased with the result but would like to educate myself further!)

I appeal to this board for edification please!
