Ingeborg Schwenzer (Univ. of Basel - Law), Christiana Fountoulakis (Univ. of Fribourg - Law), & Mariel Dimsey have published the second edition of International Sales Law: A Guide to the CISG (Hart Publishing 2012). Here's the abstract:
Written for international trade lawyers, practitioners and students from common and civil law countries, this casebook is an excellent starting point for learning about the CISG, providing an article-by-article analysis of the Convention. The commentary on each article is accompanied by extracts from cases and associated comparative materials, as well as references to important trade usages such as the INCOTERMS® 2010. The book features a selection of the most significant cases, each of which has been abridged to enable the reader to focus on its essential features and the relevant questions arising from it. The case extracts are accompanied by a comprehensive overview of parallel provisions in other international instruments, uniform projects and domestic laws.
