Commentary on the UNIDROIT Principles of International Commercial Contracts (1st edn, OUP 2009) (co-edited with S. Vogenauer)
This book is an article-by-article commentary of the UNIDROIT Principles on International Commercial Contracts (2004), the global standard in the law for international contracts. The UNIDROIT Principles have been the model for numerous national codifications. Moreover, they are becoming increasingly indispensible in arbitrations of disputes arising out of international contracts, either as directly applicable law or as a source for the interpretation of other laws governing the contracts, such as especially the Vienna Sales Convention. Even their application by state courts has been seriously taken into consideration in the negotiations of the Rome I Regulation.
The Commentary provides a comprehensive analysis of each provision of the Principles in the light of existing authorities and the larger comparative perspective. Thereby, it offers both practitioners and scholars from different legal backgrounds an easy and profound access to the Principles and therefore greatly enhances their use in practice of international arbitration as well as for research and teaching related to international contracts.

This work provides practitioners and scholars alike with quick access to and in-depth comparative analysis of the laws of Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile (including the new law on international commercial arbitration of September 2004), Paraguay, and Uruguay, as well as of the relevant international treaties, such as especially the MERCOSUR-Agreements of 1998.
The book follows the structure of the UNCITRAL Model Law on International Commercial Arbitration, which guarantees easy access to the sometimes complicated national laws. The direct topical comparative analysis provides for a deeper insight than mere country reports. Interviews with nearly 100 judges, lawyers, and scholars assure that the practical reality is well reflected in the analysis. A bilingual annex contains the English translations of all relevant legislation.
