The contributors to this volume, all practising lawyers, examine vital provisions in international contracts, including: contract proposals and letters of intent, general conditions, letters of credit and bank guarantees terms of delivery, storage, shipment and insurance, excusable delay and hardship, liquidated damages and penalties, warranties and performance guarantees, limitation of liability, and governing law and dispute resolution. A variety of particular types of contracts common in international transactions are reviewed, including agency and distribution agreements, and turnkey contracts. The aim is to treat each topic from a practitioner's perspective, with an emphasis on those issues most relevant to a day-to-day law practice.

This work contributes to the theory and practice of long-term international commercial transactions ("LTICTs"). Such transactions are becoming more of the norm than the exception in the sphere of international trade, since they are the most appropriate tool for meeting the demands of an ever-increasing sophistication in prevailing technology and financial techniques. They mobilize financial, operational and manpower capacities which are beyond the means of any single enterprise. It is this enormous increase in the use of LTICTs that makes a study of their conceptual basis one of significant importance and interest. This work explores the conceptual basis of these contracts, and analyzes international arbitral practice involving LTICTs in pursuit of defining the nature and content of such transactions. This work should appeal to practitioners and theorists interested in arbitration, providing them with a coherent structure of the theory and practice relating to the performance of LTICTs.

The Nordic Contracts Act is a product of the intense legislative co-operation in the private law area between Denmark, Norway and Sweden in the first two decades of the 20th century. The Act was promulgated in Sweden in 1915, in Denmark in 1917 and in Norway in 1918. After their independence Finland followed suit in 1929 and Iceland in 1936. The Act is essentially identical in all five countries and on the whole still in force in its original form.This book is the second volume of a Festschrift written by leading Nordic scholars in celebration of the Nordic Contracts Act's one hundredth anniversary of its first promulgation. The first volume is written in Nordic languages and has the title "Aftaleloven 100 ar".The essays include an overview of Nordic contract law, pre-contractual liability, agency, passivity, construction of contractual terms, changed circumstances, unfair contract terms and protection of weaker parties, contractual duty of loyalty (good faith and fair dealing), privity of contract and direct claims, a comparison between the Nordic Contracts Act and CISG, and DCFR in the Swedish Supreme Court.
