This authoritative new edition addresses international sales of goods and covers contracts governed by English law and contracts governed by the United Nations Convention on the International Sale of Goods. Contract issues are tackled in detail as well as property matters and most notably those issues arising out of the use of documents of title, such as marine bills of lading. In addition to the rights and duties of seller and buyer, there is substantial material on bankers' documentary letters of credit. The book not only includes commentary on decided cases, but also standard form contracts which represent evolving trade practice. Readers gain a contextual understanding of the trading world in which international sales occur through a thorough and detailed case law analysis. New to this edition is commentary on the Contracts Act as well as discussions on conflict of laws, the construction of commercial contracts and e-commerce. The documentary letters of credit and the UN Convention on the International Sale of Goods are given extensive treatment in this edition.Shipowner and charterer will therefore be bound by clauses in the charter party that could not be incorporated in the bill of lading ... the bill to Y.
