Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Professors Schaffer and Earle along with Senior Partner (law) Agusti have provided a very useful and relatively easy to use guide to international marketing law, a wealth of court cases on this subject, and a clear and complete picture of the complicated but quite fascinating milieu of international sale of goods, credits permitting the (air and maritime) transport of goods, and relevant international conventions governing the same. This text, however, is not really for beginners who might wish to explore the legal side of international business transactions on their own. While the treatment is effective and clear it is one that is appropriate for advanced courses in the subject not casual enquiry. Of special interest are three chapters at the end of the work that treat labor and discrimination matters, environmental protection law, and (rather more challenging) the body of law set to regulate competition and punish anti-competitive practices. For the student the effort required is not minimal and the reward is likely to be signficant. For the legal professional the collection of international commercial law cases will be a welcome addition to the office library.

I abandoned Barnes & Noble for e-textbooks because you could only use them on a regular computer - no eReaders, no mobile devices. This eBook for Kindle has the opposite problem - I can only read it on my Kindle, meaning if I need a bigger display or other, more robust features for studying, I'm out of luck.

Format: Kindle Edition
It says the book is the "Kindle Edition" but it isn't actually available for Kindle. If you have a Kindle and plan to read this book on it, you're out of luck. It's "incompatible" according to Amazon customer service. This is supposedly the decision of the author or the publisher. A Kindle book that is not compatible with a Kindle. Makes a lot of sense to me!
