Overview

Current legal systems enacted to deal with the environmental problems of non-point pollution and uncontrolled sprawl are hampered by limitations in real property law in the United States. Goldstein (law, Pace U.) outlines a plan to address these limitations that recognizes that property law is evolutionary in form and has at different times recognized accommodated responsibilities of land ownership. He provides conceptual and historical justification for his "Green Wood in the Bundle of Sticks" program that would incorporate components of ecology and environmental ethics and describes examples of legislative, judicial, and societal moves that help bring "Green Wood" closer. The procedural and substantive implications of the program are illustrated with hypothetical exercises demonstrating its application. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
