An innovative examination of the law's treatment of property, this student textbook provides an extremely useful and readable account of general property law principles. It draws on a wide range of materials on property rights in general, and the English property law system in particular, looking at all kinds of property, not just land. It includes the core legal source materials in property law along with excerpts from social science literature, legal theory, and economics, many of which are not easily accessible to law students. These materials are accompanied by a critical commentary, as well as notes, questions and suggestions for further reading. It will be of interest to undergraduate property law students and to non-law students taking property law modules in courses covering planning, environmental law, economics and estate management.Read more

Reviews & endorsements
'Such broad coverage of the subject makes for a book which is unique in its field and which cannot fail to inspire the reader to engage at some level with the subject. … In short, the book contains some hugely interesting and original pockets of analysis. … it does provide a marvellous compendium of ideas which, if used in conjunction with an orthodox textbook, would be a real asset to students and academics alike.' The Cambridge Law Journal
