Damages Under the Convention of Contracts for the International Sale of Goods
Damages Under the Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods, Second Edition presents a practical and detailed analysis of the methods used to determine and calculate damages under the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (CISG). Incorporating both worldwide judicial and arbitral decisions, Damages Under the CISG, Second Edition, is a unique and comprehensive guide to fully understanding this important area of law. It provides authoritative guidance on the differences that exist between uniform international instruments and domestic laws and offers comparative analysis of the calculation of damages under the civil and common law systems. The fault system and causation principle are compared with the foreseeability principle, one of the key considerations under Article 74 of the CISG. Where applicable to understanding damages issues, the UNIDROIT Principles and the Principles of European Contract Law are referenced in depth. These principles have been updated and the information revamped for the second edition, as well as additional information on fundamental breach of contract.
