This book, published jointly by Nomos, Hart, and Beck, will, rightly, be regarded as an essential purchase by practically anyone who practises, studies or teaches cross-border commercial law, or aspects thereof, concerning the sale of goods or the movement of goods in connection with such sales. This book offers the reader the tantalising prospect of an excellent and up-to-date English language legal commentary in one manageable volume that has been written by a cast of twenty-one distinguished and international subject experts to cover thirteen different international legal instruments. The instruments in question are a sensible mix of the most important conventions, rules and practices regarding the cross-border sale and related transportation of goods other than by sea.

The provisions covered are: The United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (“CISG”); the Convention on the Limitation Period in the International Sale of Goods; the UNDROIT Principles (“PICC”); the Incoterms® 2010; The Convention on the Contract for the Carriage of Goods By Road (“CMR”); the Budapest Convention on the Contract Carriage of Goods by Inland Waterway; COTIF Uniform Rules Concerning the Contract of International Carriage of Passengers (“CIV UR”) and Goods (“CIM UR”); the COTIF Appendix B Regarding the Uniform Rules Concerning the Contract of International Carriage of Goods By Rail (“COTIF/CIM”); the Convention for the Unification of Certain Rules For International Carriage by Air of 1999 (“Montreal Convention”); Directive 86/653/EEC OJ 1986 L 382/17 on the coordination of the Laws of the Member States relating to self-employed commercial agents; Directive 2011/7/EU OJ 2011 L48/1 on Combatting Late Payment in Commercial Transactions; the Convention on International Interests in Mobile Equipment (“Cape Town Convention”); and the Uniform Customs and Practices for Letters of Credit (“UCP”).
