Commentary on the Unidroit Principles of International Commercial Contracts (UPICC)

[en] This new edition of the leading commentary on the Principles of International Commercial Contracts (PICC) has been updated to include the 26 additional provisions brought in by the PICC 2010. The text on the older provisions has been updated in order to draw together and comment on recent case-law and legal writing.

This book provides commentary on the substantive rules on contracts with a comprehensive analysis of each provision, and relevant case law, and compares national provisions with the PICC. The topics of conditions, illegality and plurality of obligors and obligees are covered for the first time in this new edition.
"In sum, the Vogenauer book belongs in every library intended to support the making and interpretation of cross-border contracts. The book provides a triple value: (1) it gives advice and inspiration to international practitioners; (2) it inspires academic debate; and (3) it may also inspire UNIDROIT itself to continue its important work in the distilling and shaping of further international commercial principles, including the Official Comments." - Eckart Brödermann, International Trade Law & Regulation.

"The quality of the commentary and writing in this excellent and beautifully produced book is of the very highest order. It is essential reading for anyone with an interest in the PICC." - Eric Clive, Edinburgh Studies in Law

"Whatever the justification of or reason for applying and considering the PICC in a particular context, a perusal of the Commentary and careful examination of the analyses contained therein can only be highly recommended ... the book is an excellent resource for the study of international arbitration for novices and experienced hands alike." - Johannes Landbrecht, ASA Bulletin, Sep 2015
