For a book which purports to be on international trade, the focus is incredibly narrow. It should be called "International Trade from a Narrow UK Perspective". Most strikingly, the author dismisses the CISG in a few lines, notwithstanding that the majority of international transactions are now goverened by it. Although the book will no doubt be of use to UK law students studying international trade from a UK point of view, it is of almost no value to anyone else, including students from other common law jurisdictions or, for that matter, to UK students who want a truly international perpective.
