At a time when developing countries such as India and China are emerging as key players in the provision of manufactured goods and services on the international scene an understanding of international trade law has become increasingly important for those studying and practising law, business, banking and finance. This textbook provides a comprehensive and informed analysis of the complexities of an international sale transaction and uses tables and diagrams wherever possible to aid students who may be unfamiliar with this often challenging area of law.


Focusing on international sales of goods and the various relations that arise as a result of a sale contract, this text looks at:



  • standard trade terms and the Convention on International Sales of Goods 1980

  • issues relating to Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) and e-commerce, such as security

  • cargo transportation

  • insurance and payment issues

  • dispute resolution including mediation and arbitration.

With a suggested reading list and website listings for relevant legislation in each chapter, this book is essential reading for all students of international trade law, international commercial law, banking and finance, business studies and export management.
