£80.00
Pre-order for despatch on publication.

Synopsis

This concise work by the leading global expert on sale of goods law provides the perfect starting point for anyone requiring an introduction to international commercial contracts.



The book's comprehensive but accessible structure provides the reader with analysis of the relevant international law together with consideration of the practical issues relating to international contracts. Providing all elements necessary for understanding international contract law, consideration is given to unified and harmonized law alongside general principles found in Common and Civil Law legal systems.



The book begins by considering issues of applicable law and conflicts of laws before analysing the main initiatives and instruments of harmonisation. There is considerable focus on the two main instruments (The United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (CISG); and The Principles of International Commercial Contracts (PICC)) including analysis of the scope of their application. Other international instruments considered include the UN Convention on the Use of

Electronic Communications in International Commercial Contracts, and the UN Convention on Limitation, as well as the main forms used in practice: the Incoterms (c) 2010; and UCP 600.



All relevant law and practice is examined through a series of topic based chapters covering all relevant areas from freedom, interpretation, formation and validity of contract to sellers' and buyers obligations. There are also specific chapters on aspects relevant to disputes such as remedies, unwinding of contracts and limitation of actions.

Professor Ingeborg Schwenzer is Dean of Swiss International Law School and Professor emerita of Private Law at the University of Basel, Switzerland. She is also adjunct professor at Bond University, Gold Coast, Australia, and was formerly adjunct professor at City University, Hong Kong, and at Griffith University, Brisbane, Australia.
