Summary "This book is the product of extended research by five scholars working in the area of private international law. It provides a comprehensive review and analysis of the jurisprudence surrounding the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (CISG). As of February 15, 2005, sixty-four countries have adopted the CISG as their international sales law. Given its importance as the world's preeminent sales law, the authors believe that a fresh analysis of the evolving case and arbitral law is needed at this time. It has been fifteen years since the adoption of the CISG, and in those years a critical mass of interpretive jurisprudence has developed. The analysis in the book is undertaken at two levels - the practical interpretation of the CISG and the theoretical limits of interpreting of supranational conventions."--BOOK JACKET
