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.

The United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (CISG) came into force in 1980 and has been ratified and adopted by over 50 of the world's major trading nations. This landmark Convention has set the tone for the harmonization of international law and by its widespread acceptance spurred progress in the harmonization of laws in other areas. Scholars and practitioners from around the world have written extensively on the development and impact of the CISG while courts and arbitral tribunals have issued opinions and judgements based on articles of the Convention. Because of this growing body of information, a need arose for a reference work that would provide easy access to this subject. For the past 20 years Professor Michael Will has been recognized as compiling the most definitive bibliography of books and articles on the CISG as well as a comprehensive digest of all cases related to the CISG. Now that the Convention for the International Sale of Goods is reaching its twentieth anniversary and the number of writings on the CISG exceeds 2,000 items and case law and arbitral decisions number over 200, the time is opportune to publish Professor Will's important reference work for wider dissemination.

Nations in all regions of the world today share a common international sales law, The United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (CISG). The Convention was prepared by the United Nations Commission on International Trade Law (UNCITRAL) and adopted by a diplomatic conference on 11 April 1980. Since then, the number of countries that have adopted the CISG account for over two-thirds of all world trade. The area of international sales law continues to grow as technology and development take us to a global economy. As such, the study of the CISG has become an integral component of this ever-growing area of international commercial law. The Review of the CISG is published once yearly and features articles written by prominent legal scholars in the field of international sale of goods from around the world. In addition to scholarly writings analyzing the various articles of the CISG, the book seeks to compile translations of recent decisions as well as commentaries of notable cases relating to the CISG. The Review of the CISG provides both a forum for legal discussion within the international legal community in the area of international sales law and as an authoritative source of reference for international scholars.

This book brings together the top international sales law scholars from twenty-three countries to review the Convention on Contracts for International Sale of Goods (CISG) and its role in the unification of global sales law. It reviews the substance of CISG rules and analyzes alternative interpretations. A comparative analysis is given of how countries have accepted, interpreted, and applied the CISG. Theoretical insights are offered into the problems of uniform laws, the CISG's role in bridging the gap between the common and civil legal traditions, and the debate over good faith in CISG jurisprudence. The book reviews case law relating to the interpretation and application of the provisions of the CISG; analyzes how it has been recognized and implemented by national courts and arbitral tribunals; offers insights into problems of uniformity of application of an international sales convention; compares the CISG with the English Sale of Goods Act and places it in the context of other texts of UNCITRAL; and analyzes the CISG from the practitioner's perspective.
