Boundaries and Intersections

5th Annual MAA Schlechtriem CISG Conference

Edited by: Ingeborg Schwenzer, Lisa Spagnolo

This book explores how the Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (CISG) interacts with non-uniform domestic laws, international laws, and soft laws in jurisdictions around the world. It covers topics as diverse as: recent US federal court encounters with the CISG; roots and traces of the CISG in the Common European Sales Law (CESL); and potential coverage of 'emotional defects' by the CISG. Other chapters pose a novel approach to determining the CISG's scope or look beyond the CISG to future developments and directions. The book is sure to provide food for thought for anyone advising on or interested in international commercial transactions, and it is a valuable addition to the collections of academics and practitioners alike.
