250. Schlechtriem, supra note 239, at 214. Although it eventually held that a case for culpa in contrahendo did not arise on the facts, a German court was effectively prepared to apply the domestic law on this issue after concluding that a CISG contract had failed to arise on the basis of the various negotiations. Oberlandesgericht [OLG] [Provincial Court of Appeal], Frankfurt am Main, Mar. 4, 1994, 10 U 80/93 (F.R.G.). The court did not consider Schlechtriem's commentary on this particular point. Elsewhere, Schlechtriem offers a more interesting analysis. See Schlechtriem, supra note 6, at 472 (suggesting the possibility that an allowable revocation pursuant to Article 16(1) might not attract liability under domestic law in any event, since it is not "wrongful" under the CISG). In cases of fraud, Schlechtriem allows recourse to domestic law on the basis that fraud is outside the CISG's scope. Id. Schlechtriem, however, excludes tort or delict remedies once an offer has been made. Id. at 213-14; Workshop , supra note 127, at 475

251. Schlechtriem, supra note 224, at 74-75 .

252. Id. at 81.

253. While maintaining his opposition to precontractual liability within the CISG, Schlechtriem observes that careful development of precontractual liability pursuant to Article 7(2) could improve uniformity. See supra note 247. More ambivalently, Honnold canvasses the possibility of CISG liability for reliance on wrongfully revoked offers. See supra notes 230-231 and accompanying text.

254. Schlechtriem applies nemo potest venire contra factum proprium instead as a general principle in resolving the question of whether declarations in Part III of the CISG are to be considered as binding or not. Peter Schlechtriem, Commentary to Article 27 , in CISG COMMENTARY, supra note 83, at 306, 314-15.

255. E.g. , Schlechtriem, supra note 200, at 278 n.62.

256. Where communication of acceptance has been hindered by the addressee to prevent contract formation, for example, Schlechtriem prefers that Article 24 be constructed to promote good faith in accord with Article 7(1), or that general principles be utilized to gap-fill Article 24 pursuant to Article 7(2) to prevent application of culpa in contrahendo by ensuring that the CISG covers such situations Id. at 278-79.

257. Schlechtriem, transcribed in Workshop , supra note 127, at 230. Schlechtriem clearly confirms his view in discussing the case study involving a letter-of-intent scenario. Id. at 221-24.

258. Id. at 228-29.

259. Schlechtriem, supra note 235, at 182-84.

260. Schlechtriem, transcribed in Workshop , supra note 127, at 231.

261. Id. at 236.

262. E.g. , Magnus, Remarks , supra note 28, � 2(c)(aa). Kritzer himself simply states, "Damages for precontractual liability appear to remain subject to regulation by applicable domestic law, not the Convention." Albert H. Kritzer, Precontractual Liability , in GUIDE TO PRACTICAL APPLICATIONS OF THE UNITED NATIONS CONVENTION ON CONTRACTS FOR THE INTERNATIONAL SALE OF GOODS (Albert H. Kritzer ed., 1994), available at < http://cisgw3.law.pace.edu/cisg/biblio/kritzer2.html#contract >.

The largely flat surface of the Pampas is composed of thick deposits of loess interrupted only by occasional caps of alluvium and volcanic ash. In the southern Pampas the landscape rises gradually to meet the foothills of sierras formed from old sediments and crystalline rocks.

This region consists of an Andean zone (also called Western Patagonia) and the main Patagonian plateau south of the Pampas, which extends to the tip of South America. The surface of Patagonia descends east of the Andes in a series of broad, flat steps extending to the Atlantic coast. Evidently, the region’s gigantic landforms and coastal terraces were created by the same tectonic forces that formed the Andes, and the coastline is cuffed along its entire length as a result. The cliffs are rather low in the north but rise in the south, where they reach heights of more than 150 feet (45 metres). The landscape is cut by eastward-flowing rivers—some of them of glacial origin in the Andes—that have created both broad valleys and steep-walled canyons.

Patagonia: sheep raising Sheep raising in Patagonia, southern Argentina.
Perito Moreno Glacier Perito Moreno Glacier, Los Glaciares National Park, Argentina, 2006. It is one of the Patagonia region's most-popular tourist attractions.

Patagonia includes a region called the Lake District , which is nestled within a series of basins between the Patagonian Andes and the plateau. There are volcanic hills in the central plateau west of the city of Río Gallegos . These hills and the accompanying lava fields have dark soils spotted with lighter-coloured bunchgrass, which creates a leopard-skin effect that intensifies the desolate, windswept appearance of the Patagonian landscape. A peculiar type of rounded gravel called grava patagónica lies on level landforms, including isolated mesas. Glacial ice in the past extended beyond the Andes only in the extreme south, where there are now large moraines.

The largest river basin in the area is that of the Paraguay–Paraná– Río de la Plata system. It drains an area of some 1.2 million square miles (3.2 million square km), which includes northern Argentina, the whole of Paraguay, eastern Bolivia, most of Uruguay, and a large part of Brazil. In Argentina the principal river of this system is the Paraná, formed by the confluence of the Paraguay and Alto Paraná rivers. The Río de la Plata (often called the River Plate) is actually the estuary outlet of the system formed by the confluence of the Paraná and Uruguay rivers; its name, meaning “River of Silver,” was coined in colonial times before explorers found that there was neither a single river nor silver upstream from its mouth. Other tributaries of this system are the Iguazú ( Iguaçu ), Pilcomayo, Bermejo, Salado, and Carcarañá. Just above its confluence with the Alto Paraná, the Iguazú River plunges over the escarpment of the Brazilian massif, creating Iguazú Falls —one of the world’s most spectacular natural attractions.

Constructed of steel and reinforced concrete with some limestone facing, the structure has five floors, excluding its mezzanine and basement. It consists of five concentric pentagons, or “rings,” with 10 spokelike corridors connecting the whole. There are 17.5 miles (28 km) of corridors, but, because of its innovative construction, it is possible to walk between any two points within the building in approximately seven minutes. Several libraries serve as research facilities for the military, and these repositories subscribe to more than 1,700 periodicals in a wide variety of languages. Two cafeterias, a dining room, and seven snack bars are also located on the premises . There are 67 acres (27 hectares) of parking lots, which can accommodate about 8,700 automobiles. Bus and taxi terminals are located beneath a huge concourse containing a shopping centre for Pentagon employees. The Washington Metro subway also serves the facility, and a heliport was added in 1956.

In 2001, on the 60th anniversary of the Pentagon’s groundbreaking, five terrorists hijacked a commercial airliner and piloted it into the building during the September 11 attacks . Part of the southwest side of the building was destroyed, and 189 people, including the terrorists, were killed. The damage was largely repaired within a year.
