Review quote

`Taking a complete and accurate approach to the subject, this collection provides an exhaustive picture of the law relating to the international import/export contracts applicable to world trade. Adopting a comparative stance, these volumes give the reader a comprehensive understanding of the worldwide legal approach toward the CISG, and provide a valuable guide to the understanding of both the application and the interpretation of that law, thus being a must-read not only for students, but also for practitioners and researchers studying and working in the field of international sales law' -- Francesco Cortesi, Judge, Italian Supreme Court
