Written for international trade lawyers, practitioners and students from common and civil law countries, this casebook is an excellent starting point for learning about the CISG, providing article-by-article analysis of the Convention.

The analysis of each article is accompanied by extracts from cases and associated comparative materials, as well as references to important trade usages such as the INCOTERMS. The book features a selection of the most significant cases, each of which has been abridged to enable the reader to focus on its essential features and the relevant questions arising from it. The case extracts are accompanied by a comprehensive overview of parallel provisions in other international instruments, uniform projects and domestic laws.

The analysis, cases, texts and questions are intended to aid readers in their comparative law and international sales law studies, and are designed to draw attention to the particular issues surrounding specific CISG provisions and to provoke careful consideration of possible solutions.

The book is a reference work as well as an introduction to the individual problem areas. In particular, it acts as a preparatory work for the Willem C. Vis International Commercial Arbitration Moot. The inclusion of sample questions also makes it particularly helpful for self-study purposes.
