No one but Professor Bonell ... was better qualified to write this sort of "Discours preliminaire" to the UNIDROIT Principles.... There is no doubt that his International Restatement of Contract Law will induce all interested circles (practitioners, judges, legislators, & academics) to take account of the UNIDROIT Principles & to accord them the importance they merit. Prof. Denis Tallon, University of Paris II Clearly illustrates the ways in which the Principles may be used by the international community ... it is an easily read statement of the principles of commercial contracts for practitioners & students alike. Allan D. Rose, President of the Australian Law Reform Commission Provides, in clear & simple language, a vivid, descriptive & comparative analysis of the UNIDROIT Principles. Prof. Paul A. Crepeau, McGill University, Immediately recognized all over the world in its first edition as the definitive treatment of international contract law as restructured by the UNIDROIT Principles, this substantially revised & expanded new edition augments its already comprehensive coverage with analysis of: . the 1980 United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (CISG); . the Principles of European Contract Law; . the first practical experiences with the UNIDROIT Principles; & . a survey of the first major decisions rendered by arbitral tribunals & State courts thus far.
