About the Authors
  • Updated and expanded for the second edition, this volume provides attorneys, academics and students with a detailed yet accessible overview of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (CISG). Adopted by more than eighty nations and governing a significant portion of international sales, the CISG regulates contract formation, performance, risk of loss, conformity to contractual requirements and remedies for breach. This volume explains the CISG doctrines and their ambiguities, and appraises the extent to which the doctrines reduce transaction costs for commercial actors. Its topic-based approach will be ideal for those pursuing academic analysis or subject-specific research.

    • Features a topic-based organization, ideal for cross-subject research and courses in international sales law
    • The second edition has been revised and expanded to include developing case law and more comprehensive treatments of warranties, exemption and scope issues
    • Is distinct among course books in examining CISG through the lens of economic analysis
