În explicit recognition of Professor Honnold's unique understanding of the Convention's development and the issues that occupied those who drafted and finalized the text, the substantial new textual material incorporated into this new edition is set in bold italics, allowing the reader to distinguish the work of the editor from text preserved from earlier editions, and thus identifying the material that carries Professor Honnold's special authority. Over three decades Professor Honnold's almost intuitive grasp of the instrument has guided governments, tribunals, scholars and practitioners towards an enlightened international understanding of the treaty. This new edition provides tribunals, practitioners, and scholars with even more invaluable insights into the meaning of each article of the Convention.

Uniform law For The international sale of goods is now in force in each continent and used by over fifty of the world's major trading nations. The United Nations Convention on Contracts For The International Sale of Goods (CISG) is widely recognized as a landmark effort to harmonize laws governing international transactions. More than a decade after its initial implementation and widespread use in thousands of contracts, tribunals in jurisdictions around the world are reviewing articles of the Convention and citing them in both judicial and arbitral cases. Professor John Honnold, renowned scholar of commercial law, former Chief of the UN International Law Branch and Secretary of the UN Commission on International Trade Law, led the work of drafting and adopting the 1980 Convention on the International Sale of Goods. With the publication of the third edition of Uniform Law for International Sales, Professor Honnold is once again providing tribunals, practitioners, and scholars with invaluable insights into the meaning of each Article of the Convention. As in previous editions, The author offers concrete examples to illustrate practical applications of the Convention, but now he also cites the hundreds of decisions that apply To The Convention. Many of these decisions will influence the promotion of uniformity among countries that have adopted the Convention, encourage the settlement of disputes, and create a consensus for change when application of the Convention seems questionable. The UN Convention on Contracts of the International Sales of Goods has changed the way international sales contracts are drafted and any resulting disputes settled.

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.

“The Draft UNCITRAL Digest and Beyond” is one of the most useful single volumes available on the CISG. It includes the full text of the draft “UNCITRAL Digest” which catalogues the cases and arbitral awards to date that have interpreted and applied the CISG on an article by article basis. “The Digest and Beyond” includes also commentary by eminent CISG scholars that addresses issues not yet considered in the cases. With more than 1000 decisions applying the CISG in courts and arbitral tribunals around the world, the UNCITRAL Secretariat charged five CISG experts from a variety of regions with the task of creating a digest of CISG case law. “The Digest and Beyond” includes the draft “UNCITRAL Digest”, even before it is released officially by UNCITRAL. It also goes where the authors of the Digest were not allowed to go, given the narrow mandate within which the drafters were asked to work. Its chapters build upon the work of the “UNCITRAL Digest”. The Digest describes the reasoning and results of existing CISG cases; in “The Digest and Beyond”, the Digest authors analyze those cases, and discuss issues that have not yet arisen in the case law. Thus, in many ways, “The Digest and Beyond” provides scholarship that can direct future cases in areas that have not yet been considered by courts and arbitrators as well as in areas in which contradictory court decisions exist.
