The Enforceability of Promises in European Contract Law, 516 Pages


 

http://www.thuvienso.info Review
‘… the approach is a valuable one, and it is to be hoped that there will soon be more volumes in this interesting series.’ European Law Review
‘The case study approach is a very helpful and accessible teaching tool. … The introductory and concluding chapters stand in their own right as succinct and readable works of scholarship. Scholars and students can then dip into a selection of the cases to see in depth how the different systems work at a concrete level. This is a book which will be used extensively as an ais to the greater understanding of contract laws in western Europe.’ The Cambridge Law Journal
‘The conclusion … weeks to identify what might be the best approach to adopt in relation to each broad type of promise examined through the case studies. this latter aspect will make the book of interest to those concerned with the harmonisation of European private law … the book will also be an indispensable resource for those interested in comparative private law, legal history and contractual obligations more generally.’ European Public Law
Product Description
Professor James Gordley opens this volume with a concise history of the legal status of promises. In the central part of the book legal experts examine how twelve modern European legal systems deal with fifteen concrete situations in which a promise may not be enforceable–situations that include gifts, loans, bailments, houses, rewards, and brokerage contracts. Despite differences in legal doctrine, the volume reveals similarities in the results. This is the second completed project of The Common Core of European Private Law launched at the University of Trento.
