Scots Law News was delighted to receive a copy of La Promessa in Scozia: Per un Percorso di Diitto Contrattuale Europeo by Laura Vagni of the University of Macerata, Italy, following its publication in February 2008 by Giuffré Editore Milano.  So far as we are aware, this is the first book-length publication on Scots law in Italian, although we know of books about Scots law in French and German.  This latest work costs a modest 31 euros (ISBN 88-14-13666-1).  For those whose Italian is a little rusty, we think the title best translated as Promise in Scotland: By a Route from European Contract Law”.  Although it will take the Scots Law News reviewer a little time to grapple with the full content of Ms Vagni’s arguments
