Excerpt from Modern Land Law Twenty years' experience as a student, and some ten years of teaching, have led the author, rightly or wrongly, to the conclusion, that there is room for another textbook on the important and difficult subject of English Land Law. The class of readers by whom, as it appears to him, such a book is especially needed, consists of those students who, either at the Universities or elsewhere, have to get up their law without the attractions, or distractions, of professional surroundings. But he ventures to think that there are others to whom the book will be useful. Needless to say, the author has not endeavoured to recommend his work by originality of views, nor by criticism of accepted doctrines. Modern English Land Law is a dogmatic system, which rests entirely on authority; and its contents are, with a few exceptions, free from doubt.

This book brings together a team of leading authorities on land law to analyse the key debates and policy issues in this area of the law, with the main chapters addressing proprietary and non-proprietary rights, registration, easements, leases, co-ownership and trusts, mortgages and land law and human rights. Many of the policies and assumptions which underlie land law have immense significance in economic, social and emotional terms upon individuals lives. This book set out to analyse the current tensions within land law, such as the conflicting needs for certainty and fairness, and the difficult balance which has to be drawn between protecting existing property rights and simplifying conveyancing to ensure the easy transfer of land. Particular attention is paid to the likely impact of the Human Rights Act. Land Law: issues, debates, policy will be essential reading for students, practitioners and others seeking an understanding of the key issues and debates surrounding this area of the law.

Holdsworth, Sir William. An Historical Introduction to the Land Law. London: Oxford University Press, 1927. xxiv, 339 pp. Reprinted 2004 by The Lawbook Exchange, Ltd. LCCN 2002025949. ISBN 1-58477-262-X. Cloth. $95. * Sir William Holdsworth [1871-1944] was one of the most distinguished historians of English common law. Written to provide students of Real Property with a concise history of the field, Holdsworth believed this knowledge necessary as contemporary land law was difficult to understand without an understanding of its roots. Fifoot commends this book in his English Law and its Background for its history of the rules against perpetuities (121). The Law Quarterly Review noted that "every beginner will certainly have to read [this] book before he reads anything else" (44:105).

Landmark Cases in Land Law is the sixth volume in the Landmark Cases series of collected essays on leading cases (previous volumes in the series having covered Restitution, Contract, Tort, Equity and Family Law). The eleven cases in this volume cover the period 1834 to 2011, although, interestingly, no fewer than six of the cases were decided or reported in the 1980s. The names of the selected cases will be familiar to property lawyers. However, individually, the essays provide a reappraisal of the cases from a wide range of perspectives - focusing on their historical, social or theoretical context, highlighting previously neglected aspects and even questioning their perceived importance. Collectively, the essays explore several common themes that pervade the law of property – the numerus clausus principle, the conclusiveness of registration, the desirability of certainty in the law and the central question of the enforceability of interests through changes in ownership of land. This volume provides a collection of essays that will be of interest to academics, students and practitioners.
