Summary "This book contains the updated papers of the 2nd Annual MAA Peter Schlechtriem CISG Conference which was held in March 2010. The contributions cover a variety of topics, ranging from empirical research relating to the UN Convention on the Sales of Goods (CISG) to issues of uniformity. Subjects discussed include the global acceptance of the CISG, CISG arbitration, legal education on CISG, CISG and Electronic Communication, the applicability of CISG and the role of CISG in Asia. As the application of CISG continues to be expanded, a book that covers the latest developments on CISG and ensuing domestic trade law reform cannot fail to be of importance." --publisher's website
