Reviews from the previous edition: "Peter Schlechtriem and his colleagues have provided an indispensable source for any lawyer confronted with a problem under the CISG, a work with clear organization, lucid explanations, careful analysis, and comprehensive citations. The writers' civil law perspective makes it of special interest to the common lawyer."--the late E. Allan Farnsworth, McCormack Professor of Law, Columbia University"The new English edition of Professor Schlechtriem's outstanding and highly respected Commentary on the UN Convention for International Sales (CISG) will become a most significant source of commercial law for students, scholars and practitioners around the world. The accuracy and quality of the original German edition is maintained throughout the excellent translation by Geoffrey Thomas. Like its German language predecessor, this English edition recognizes the truly international character of the CISG and will thus promote the uniform application which the Convention requires and deserves."--Joseph Lookofsky, Professor, University of Copenhagen"Libraries that support work in international sales law should buy this book. The authors have done a meticulous job of collecting and analyzing CISG decisions. The book's comprehensive, authoritative treatment of the CISG makes it an invaluable reference for scholars, students, and practitioners engage in this important area of law."
