The contributors to this volume, well-known experts from Europe and the US, analyze various issues relating to the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (CISG). With its current global network of 58 Contracting States, the CISG is widely applied in practice today. To make the growing case law on this subject matter readily accessible, the UNCITRAL Secretariat in Vienna has set up a reporting system for national court decisions relating to the CISG. The extensive documentation already collected there and elsewhere will surely have a lasting impact on the ongoing scholarly debate on this topic. The present book is intended to contribute to this debate by addressing controversial issues relating to the interpretation and application of some important provisions of the new sales law. In addition, several authors also deal with the development of international principles of contract law, such as the Principles of European Contract Law, the UNIDROIT Principles and the lex mercatoria . In view of the increasing number of such rules, a discussion of the CISG would be incomplete without taking account of the relationship of the Convention to these principles as well.

Thirty years afterthe approval on the 19th April 1980, the United Nations Convention on Contractsfor the International Sale of Goods, the CISG, has become the law ofinternational sales. In the meantime 76 states have ratified the CISG whichmake up for more than two thirds of the global trade. Despite CISG's practicalimportance and its global reach the commentary literature on the CISG inEnglish, the language of international trade, is rather limited. This book isintended to fill this gap and to supplement the few existing commentaries by atruly international work which takes into account the various legal settings inwhich the CISG is applied. The Commentary is designed as a German type ofcommentary which provides an authoritative "Article-by-Article"comment to the CISG. Its structure strictly follows the structure of theprovisions of the Convention. Specific topics, e.g. E-Commerce and the CISG,comparative contract texts such as Unidroit Principles of InternationalCommercial Contracts, European Principles of Contract Law and Draft CommonFrame of Reference, are dealt with in the context of the comments of thepertinent articles. The Incoterms are also dealt with in detail.

The Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (CISG) is now being applied extensively both by international arbitral tribunals and by domestic courts of its more than 70 Member States. But do they also apply it in the same manner? Although Article 7 of the CISG underscores "the need to promote uniformity in its application," it gives little guidance as to how to achieve this goal. Each judge and arbitrator is influenced by the legal methodology of his home jurisdiction. Therefore it is somewhat of a paradox that while the number of Member States is constantly increasing, so too is the threat of variation in application. In this book, the most important issues of the CISG's methodology are analyzed by leading experts from five continents. Some contributors provide a thorough analysis of the central topics of interpretation while others enter almost uncharted territories.

The book aims to explore the remedy of damages in international sales transactions. Its focus is on the international contract law instruments such as the Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (CISG), the UNIDROIT Principles of International Commercial Contracts, and the Principles of European Contract Law. The issues addressed in the book include: the basis for the right to claim damages, definition and purpose of damages, the idea of limiting damages, principles underlying the award of damages, classification of losses and heads of recoverable losses, causation, foreseeability, mitigation, standards of proving losses and methods of calculating and determining the amount of damages. The book draws on the experience of some major legal systems in dealing with contract damages as well as on the body of cases and scholarly writings on the international instruments. In doing so, the book attempts to provide a justification for the existing rules on damages, highlights the problems in their interpretation and application, and proposes solutions to the existing problems in the light of relevant policies and goals pursued by the international instruments. The work will be of interest to practitioners involved in international commercial transactions, scholars and students interested in international commercial and comparative contract law.
