The rules of land law are numerous, complex, and, in some cases, baffling to students. The study of land law is also often portrayed as dull. Too frequently, those who find success in working out how the law operates in other areas find themselves defeated by land law. Even the great jurist Blackstone, while maintaining that "there is nothing which so generally strikes the imagination, and engages the affections of mankind, as the right of property," also concluded that the study of land law "afforded the student less amusement and pleasure in the pursuit" than the study of crime and tort. This textbook - now in its third edition - makes a difference in helping with that problem. It tells the rules' story: talking about them in terms of the work they do, in a way that will allow readers to understand and engage with them. And, through the examples it offers, the book also gives students the confidence, spur, and tools to go on to develop such perspectives for themselves. An Introduction to Land Law covers the main points found in the syllabuses of law schools in England and Wales. It offers sufficient detail in order to gain an overview of the subject and the footnotes offer plenty of pointers. As well as bringing the coverage up to date, this third edition adds chapters about two especially challenging aspects of the subject: the human rights dimension and the nature of 'ownership.'
