Description

The Oxford Introductions to U.S. Law: Property provides both a bird's eye overview of property law and an introduction to how property law affects larger concerns with individual autonomy, personhood, and economic organization. Written by two authorities on property law, this book gives students of property a coherent account of how property law works, with an emphasis on describing the central issues and policy debates. It is designed for law students who want a short and theoretically integrated treatment of the subject, as well as for lawyers who are interested in the conceptual foundations of the law of property.show more

Review quote

"Merrill and Smith, both renowned scholars of property law, apply an accessible theoretical framework to illuminate principles that govern the resolution of disputes over resources. This sunlight brings ancient-and, in some instances, superficially musty-doctrines to life." --Robert Ellickson Walter E. Meyer Professor of Property and Urban Law, Yale Law School "Merrill and Smith's book is nothing short of a marvel. It gives shape and direction to a field often considered to be diffuse and unmanageable. This volume is full of ideas that enliven all aspects of property law, showing the reader why these topics are interesting and topical." --Carol M. Rose Lohse Chair in Water and Natural Resources, The University of Arizona James E.
