Abstract:

"More than 60 countries, including the United States of America, have ratified the Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (CISG). Since CISG Contracting States account for more than two-thirds of all world trade, the Convention clearly represents a key aspect of American commercial law." "By drawing comparisons with domestic (UCC) sales law, the author explains the CISG in terms familiar to American jurists, just as special emphasis is placed on CISG decisions rendered by U.S. courts and the Article 95 reservation made by the United States. But since the CISG treaty demands an international interpretation, this expanded and fully updated Second Edition continues to draw upon the full range of CISG sources, including the increasingly numerous decisions and awards rendered by courts and arbitrators worldwide. Concrete examples and illustrations are provided throughout. Five appendices offer a wealth of reference material, including the complete text of the Convention and an extensive table of cases and arbitral awards."--Jacket.
