Among the features that have made this study aid a success:

  • the authors address principal cases used in most leading casebooks
  • skilled and experienced authorship by long-time teachers and scholars of property law

    • Private Nuisance (Chapter 27) adjacent and subjacent support
  • updated coverage of the Rule Against Perpetuities
  • many examples and explanations have been revised for greater clarity and effectiveness
