Contractual remedies aimed at performance create a well-known rift between common law and civil law traditions, in the one existing in the shadow of damages, while in the other regarded as a generally enforceable right following from the contract. Developments in approximation of laws in Europe, in particular in consumer sales law, suggest however that a convergence of these approaches may be within reach. Putting the focus on the contract of sale, which, as the most common type of contract, may fulfill a leading role in the harmonization process, this book provides a model for further convergence of European sales laws, engaging with issues of contract theory and comparative law lying at the heart of the process. Independently from this, the comparison between different systems is used in order to highlight particular problems in the remedial schemes of individual systems and to see whether a better solution may be borrowed from elsewhere. Scaling the interests of sellers and buyers as reflected in national laws as well as in uniform sets of rules - such as the UN Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods and the Principles of European Contract Law - a plea is made for a primary position for performance-oriented remedies in the harmonization of European sales law. In this context, special significance is attributed to the possibility of cure by the seller, which has both practical and conceptual links to the buyer's remedies aimed at performance.

Review:

an important addition to the literature this is a book which will be of interest to many, and it deserves to be read widely. Christian Twigg-Flesner Journal of Consumer Policy 2009 The thrust of Vanessa Mak's thesis . is a very rich comparative analysis of the 'performance-oriented remedies' in sale of goods contracts. We have nothing but praise for the clarity, the courage and the intelligence with which Vanessa Mak develops what she hold to be the best remedial regime for a future unique European sales law Yves-Maries Laithier European Review of Contract Law Vol. 5, 2009, No. 4 It is a crisp combination of comparative law expertise and obligations scholarship, with a clear end in mind; its exposition is correspondingly limpid and ordered. This book is a well-written and excellent piece of work, and will be very valuable background reading for students and professors of contract and comparative law. It therefore comes with your reviwer's unreserved approval. Go out and buy it-or if you cannot do that, at least nag your library into getting it. Andrew Tettenborn European Law Review Volume 35, April 2010
