Long description:
The second edition of Global Sales and Contract Law continues to provide comparative analysis of domestic laws of sale and contract in over sixty countries, delivering a global view of national and international sales law. The book is grounded in the practical realities of sales law, reflecting the day-to-day issues faced by practitioners. Complex questions of the obligations under a sales contract, the ways in which these are established, as well as the remedies following the breach of obligations, are all analysed. In addition to coverage of the CISG and various national regimes, the book examines regional projects, like the the UNIDROIT PICC, the PECL, the DCFR and the PLACL, and compares differences in domestic legal approach where the CISG would not apply.

The new edition covers all the relevant case law, and factors in developments such as changes to the law of contract in Argentina, France, Hungary, and Japan, a raft of countries which have adopted the CISG since the first edition, updates to the UNIDROIT PICC, and new editions of the ICC's INCOTERMS? and force majeure and hardship clauses in 2020. International or multilateral developments that were envisaged in the original edition have now either evolved or disappeared, for example, the European Union's plan for a Common European Sales Law (CESL), as reflected in the new edition.

Encompassing all aspects of sale of goods transactions, and examining the process of a sale with relation to general contract law, the book gives practitioners invaluable insight into judicial trends and possible solutions in different legal systems, whether preparing for litigation or drafting an international contract. Global Sales and Contract Law remains the most comprehensive and thorough compilation of legal analysis in the field of the sale of goods and is a source for any practitioner dealing in international commerce.
