Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Both students and instructors will appreciate the casebook's strengths:

- distinguished authorship — Robert C. Ellickson is a Professor of Law at Yale and author of several books and many law review articles. Vicki L. Been, is a highly respected scholar and authority on environmental justice

- an interdisciplinary approach that weaves historical, social, and economic perspectives throughout the work

- concise but comprehensive treatment of the legal issues that arise in both private and public regulation of land development

- a thematic framework that reveals the connections among the multiple discrete topics under land law

- helpful learning aids — original introductory text, cases, notes, excerpts from law review articles, and visual aids such as maps, charts, and graphs

This revision covers all the most recent and important developments and features:

- Kelo and other U.S. Supreme Court decisions through June 2005

- thoroughly updated notes, with recent cases, law review literature, and empirical studies

- recent land use controversies, such as the Walmart Wars

Book News Annotation:

Viewing the land-development industry as a regulated industry, Ellickson (property and urban law, Yale University) and Been (law, New York University) present cases highlighting the variations of this regulatory system. Cases explore practical problems that confront both attorneys working for development and those trying to block proposed development. Students are encouraged to strategize not only about rights, but also about remedies and alternatives to litigation. As with previous editions, citations appearing in judicial opinions are often deleted without ellipsis marks, and most of the footnotes in excerpted material are deleted without reference. Reprinted footnotes are given the numbers they carry in the original.
