The CISG is a well-known, modern and effective law of sales that has fanned out from Vienna to the four corners of the globe. It has been introduced into the legal system of multiple Latin American countries, some of which are global trade players. This book gives the reader a comprehensive understanding of the Latin American legal approach toward the CISG. It shows that Latin America is provided with numerous experts who are prepared to deal with and apply the CISG to international sales contracts. Their views are supplemented by studies from outside Latin America by other internationally-acclaimed CISG scholars.
