This book is about the details that particularly mark the American law of property. Looking centrifugally, from within the American system of law, however, the principles of property law comprise a very large subject. It is our oldest body of law, whose written novel disseisin began English common law in the time on Henry II. Anyone familiar with the workings of lawyers' minds and pens must know that 800 years will produce a prodigious body of law! Within one volume of handbook size, this book surveys the chief areas and more; history and basic concepts; estates in land, present, future, and concurrent; comparable interests in personality; landlord and tenant law; rights against neighbors and other third persons; easements and profits; running covenants; governmental controls on land use; land contracts; conveyances; titles; and recording systems.
