The Fourth Edition is designed to bring home to students the role of the law of sales, whether domestic or international, in resolving the most significant kinds of disputes that arise from commercial transactions today. This casebook provides detailed information on major U.S. commercial statutes and important international conventions that provide uniform law for the international sale of goods. The focus of these materials is on those issues in the law of sales that are most likely to give rise to controversy. Such issues arise when goods delivered by sellers are found by buyers to be unsatisfactory. The principal areas of concern are sellers obligations with respect to title and quality and buyers' legal remedies for sellers' failures. For the most part, these controversies become manifest after performance has been completed. Another set of issues concerns the parties' rights and duties when controversies arise in the course of performance, the choices that aggrieved parties can make, and the legal remedies that exist. The principal cases and notes have been carefully chosen to present those matters in contemporary context. Every chapter deals with the domestic law of the United States, principally UCC Article 2, and with international commercial law, principally the Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods. The chapters are organized so that teachers can choose how much attention to give to international commercial law. In schools that schedule Contracts to be taught in two parts, these materials serve well as the basis for Contracts II.

This fully revised, classic treatise explores the historical evolution and contemporary intricacies of international law.

Readers will find an authoritative discussion of traditional topics such as the sources of international law and the methods of international dispute resolution alongside cutting-edge issues such as cyberwarfare, global migration, climate change, and the evolving law of jurisdiction and immunities in domestic courts.
Despite the increase in the number of studies in international relations using concepts from a role theory perspective, scholarship continues to assume that a state’s own expectations of what role it should play on the world stage is shared among domestic political actors. Cristian Cantir and Juliet Kaarbo have gathered a leading team of internationally distinguished international relations scholars to draw on decades of research in foreign policy analysis to explore points of internal contestation of national role conceptions (NRCs) and the effects and outcomes of contestation between domestic political actors. Nine detailed comparative case studies have been selected for the purpose of theoretical exploration, with an eye to illustrating the relevance of role contestation in a diversity of settings, including variation in period, geographic area, unit of analysis, and aspects of the domestic political process. This edited book includes a number of pioneering insights into how the domestic political process can have a crucial effect on how a country behaves at the global level.

Winner of the SLS Peter Birks Prize for Outstanding Legal Scholarship 2009. The use of private property rights to regulate natural resources is a controversial topic because it touches upon two critical issues: the allocation of wealth in society and the conservation and management of limited resources. This book explores the extension of private property rights and market mechanisms to natural resources in international areas from a legal perspective. It uses marine fisheries to illustrate the issues that can arise in the design of regulatory regimes for natural resources. If property rights are used to regulate natural resources then it is essential that we understand how the law and values embedded within legal systems shape the development and operation of property rights in practice. The author constructs a version of property that articulates both the private and public function of property. This restores some much needed balance to property discourse. He also assesses the impact of international law on the use of property rights-a much neglected topic-and shows how different legal and socio-political values that inhere in different legal regimes fundamentally shape the construction of property rights. Despite the many claimed benefits to be had from the use of private property rights-based management systems, the author warns against an uncritical acceptance of this approach and, in particular, questions whether private property rights are the most suitable and effective arrangement of regulating of natural resources. He suggests that much more complex forms of holding, such as stewardship, may be required to meet physical, legal and moral imperatives associated with natural resources.
International criminal law lacks a coherent account of individual responsibility. This failure is due to the inability of international tribunals to capture the distinctive nature of individual responsibility for crimes that are collective by their very nature. Specifically, they have misunderstood the nature of the collective action or framework that makes these crimes possible, and for which liability may be attributed to intellectual authors, policy makers and leaders. In this book, the author draws on insights from comparative law and methodology to propose doctrines of perpetration and secondary responsibility that reflect the role and function of high-level participants in mass atrocity, while simultaneously situating them within the political and social climate which renders these crimes possible. This new doctrine is developed through a novel approach which combines and restructures divergent theoretical perspectives on attribution of responsibility in English and German domestic criminal law, as major representatives of the common law and civil law systems. At the same time, it analyses existing theories of responsibility in international criminal law and assesses whether there is any justification for their retention by international criminal tribunals.

Uniform law for the international sale of goods is now in force in each continent and used by over fifty of the world's major trading nations. the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (CISG) is widely recognized as a landmark effort to harmonize laws governing international transactions. More than a decade after its initial implementation and widespread use in thousands of contracts, tribunals in jurisdictions around the world are reviewing articles of the Convention and citing them in both judicial and arbitral cases. Professor John Honnold, renowned scholar of commercial law, former Chief of the UN International Law Branch and Secretary of the UN Commission on International Trade Law, led the work of drafting and adopting the 1980 Convention on the International Sale of Goods. the previous two editions of Professor Honnold's Uniform Law for International Sales have been appreciated by their many users for his pragmatic and concrete approach to the Convention, and recognized as essential commentaries for anyone seeking to understand the jurisprudence that went into its creation and implementation. with the publication of the third edition of Uniform Law for International Sales, Professor Honnold is once again providing tribunals, practitioners, and scholars with invaluable insights into the meaning of each Article of the Convention. As in previous editions, the author offers concrete examples to illustrate practical applications of the Convention, but now he also cites the hundreds of decisions that apply to the Convention. Many of these decisions will influence the promotion of uniformity among countries that have adopted the Convention, encourage the settlement of disputes, and create a consensus for change when application of the Convention seems questionable. The UN Convention on Contracts of the International Sales of Goods has changed the way international sales contracts are drafted and any resulting disputes settled. Professor Honnold's Uniform Law for International Sales, 3rd Edition provides the necessary insight and practical analysis for all those seeking a comprehensive examination of this most important Convention.
