Overview

Honnold’s Uniform Law for International Sales under the 1980 United Nations Convention is the fifth edition of the late Professor Honnold’s preeminent commentary, now issued under the authoritative hand of Harry M. Flechtner, editor of the fourth edition and a National Correspondent for the United States at the United Nations Commission on International Trade Law (UNCITRAL). The United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (CISG) has become the key framework for drafting international sales contracts and resolving resulting disputes. The phenomenal progress of this epoch-making uniform international law warrants this new edition.

Professor Flechtner updates Professor Honnold’s in-depth article-by-article exposition, tackling newly arising issues and reckoning with the numerous decisions and scholarly analyses focused on the CISG in the twelve years since the last edition in 2009. Professor Honnold’s masterly overview of the development and implementation of the text of the CISG and his authoritative insights into the underlying principles and purposes of the treaty have also been updated expertly.

What’s in this book:

Considering the myriad variations among distinct legal systems, the following crucial aspects of sales contracts have been elucidated:

  • delivery of the goods and handing over of documents;
  • conformity of the goods and third-party claims;
  • obligations of the parties;
  • payment of the price;
  • taking delivery;
  • anticipatory breach;
  • instalment contracts;
  • remedies for breach of contract;
  • damages;
  • interest;
  • exemptions;
  • limits and effects of avoidance;
  • preservation of the goods; and
  • risk of loss.

How this will help you:

The CISG is widely regarded as not only the most significant body of international sales law but also the most successful international commercial treaty in history. This new edition furnishes tribunals, practitioners, and scholars invaluable up-to-date insights into the meaning of each article of the Convention. The plethora of authorities consulted, many dating from the past few years, will continue to influence the promotion of international sales contract uniformity, encourage the settlement of disputes, and reinforce consensus in the Convention’s application.
