This revised and expanded edition makes land law readily accessible. The book begins with an introduction to the general scheme of modern land law and then considers the major topics in turn. Land law has changed much in recent years: the advent of significant legislation in the law of leases and in the field of co-ownership has radically altered the legal landscape. Case law, too, has boomed. In September 1998, the Law Commission published its blueprint for land registration in the next century. These developments, as well as the recognition of the importance of land law within the degree syllabus, have resulted in this edition.

Rural Land Takings Law in Modern China

Origin and Evolution

One of the most pressing issues in contemporary China is the massive rural land takings that have taken place at a scale unprecedented in human history. Expropriation of land has dispossessed and displaced millions for several decades, despite the protection of property rights in the Chinese constitution. Combining meticulous doctrinal analysis with in-depth historical investigation, Chun Peng tracks the origin and evolution of China's rural land takings law over the twentieth century and demonstrates an enduring tradition of land takings for state-led social transformation, under which the takings law is designed to be power-confirming. With changed socio-political circumstances and a new rights-respecting constitutional agenda, a rebalance of the law is now underway, but only within existing parameters. Peng provides a piercing analysis of how land has been used by the largest developing country in the world to develop itself, at what costs and where the future might be.

Land Law and Urban Policy in Context

Essays on the Contributions of Patrick McAuslan

This book is a collection of essays honouring and engaging with the work of the late Professor Patrick McAuslan. It is a collection that narrates, analyses and critiques McAuslan’s contributions, as well as offering substantive perspectives on how his work has impacted the legal fields in which he was involved: including those of land law, urban planning law and policy, land use and participation in developing countries, democratic constitutionalism, and legal education. The essays present McAuslan’s contributions in the contexts in which they emerged, and according to both the circumstances and motivations that shaped them, as well as the challenges they encountered. It thus provides an ideal point of engagement for scholars, students and policy makers that have already interacted with McAuslan’s ideas and work, or who have yet to do so.

Gardner and MacKenzie's An Introduction to Land Law has been widely acclaimed by students and teachers for the distinctively informative and stimulating way in which it addresses this challenging subject. Concise and highly readable, it covers the main points of land law found in the syllabuses of law schools in England and Wales. While not intended as a comprehensive textbook, it provides both sufficient detail, and especially the illuminating overview needed, for a real understanding, and many pointers for those seeking more. Most of all, it stands apart from other land law books in the model it offers of critical engagement with the material. As the authors say in their Preface: [W]e aim not just to state the law, but to paint its portrait, or tell its story, or something of that kind. So we set out to offer a careful, thoughtful, honest and critical (but not unsympathetic) appraisal, from a number of directions, both doctrinal and contextual. Once again, too, we present the portrait or story partly for its own interest, but most of all so as to encourage readers to try something similar for themselves ? to reflect on the subject more, and so understand it better, and at the same time deepen their thinking skills in general. As well as updating the book's overall coverage, this new edition features reworked discussions of areas where the law has recently undergone substantial change, and also where the authors' thoughts themselves have developed ? including ownership, easements, and rectification of the land register. As one reader of the first edition commented, 'it shone light where none had shone before, and lit a clear path to understanding'.
