"... a masterpiece in which the author has been successful in presenting the theoretical framework of rules applicable to international commercial sales… and the specific practices that have evolved in response to the particular commercial needs of this complex field of private international law" 
International and Comparative Law Quarterly

"Chuah has again successfully managed to explain and simplify this complex system of the practice of international trade law in presenting the economic, political and business context in which international trade operates. This book is an essential and necessary tool for anyone serious about specialising or doing research in international trade law. The fourth edition has confirmed and even enhanced this work’s well-known international standing. This work comes highly recommended as a primary source on the English law of international trade."
