“Current Issues in the CISG and Arbitration” edited by Ingeborg Schwenzer, Yesim M. Atamer and Petra Butler is published. This is a blind peer reviewed collection of papers presented at two conferences in 2012 on the United Nations Convention on the International Sale of Goods (‘CISG’). The first conference was held at the Istanbul Bilgi University, Turkey and the second on the occasion of the Arbitrators and Mediators Institute of New Zealand (‘AMINZ’) meeting in Wellington, New Zealand. Both conferences were aimed at providing for a better understanding of the CISG as well as the importance of international dispute resolution. The book allows the reader new to the CISG to familiarise him and herself with and to gain an understanding of the CISG, including its relationship to arbitration. Contributions cover, inter alia, the applicability of the CISG, interpretation and gap filling under the CISG, and the delivery of goods under the CISG. The more familiar reader will find some thought provoking contributions of interest that explore some of the pertinent CISG issues, like interest claims under the CISG, the calculation of damages, and specific performance.
