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 GiuffrĂ© 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
