The fourth edition of this text on all aspects of international trade law has been updated to incorporate and analyse the major recent developments, both in English law and contracts under the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (CISG). As well as contract law, the book also covers property matters and addresses those issues which arise from the use of documents of title, such as marine bills of lading. There is extensive treatment of the rights and duties of both the buyer and the seller, and sale contracts are considered alongside other contracts such as charter parties and letter of credit contracts. The CISG material has been significantly developed in this fourth edition and there is more extensive treatment of such matters as remedies, passing of property, standard form contracts, and the international dealing of commodities. The major developments in the case law are examined, most notably further developments on interpretation and implied terms in the Supreme Court, bunkers litigation, and the implications for the compensatory principle following the Supreme Court decision in Bunge SA v Nidera NV (2015).
