About the Authors
  • This book is the product of extended research by five scholars working in the area of private international law. It provides a comprehensive review and analysis of the jurisprudence surrounding the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (CISG). As of 1st January 2004, 62 countries have adopted the CISG as their countries' international sales law. Since the introduction of the CISG fifteen years ago, a critical mass of interpretive jurisprudence has developed, and, given its importance now as the world's preeminent sales law, the authors believed that a fresh analysis of the evolving case and arbitral law was now needed. The analysis in the book is undertaken at two levels - the practical interpretation of the CISG and the theoretical limits of interpretation of supranational conventions.

    •  A comprehensive review of international court and arbitration decisions interpreting the UN Convention on CISG
    •  Includes background materials on international sales law and the CISG
    • Contains a lengthy bibliography subdivided by the different sections of the CISG
