A Property Law Reader: Cases, Questions and Commentary, Fourth Edition
Availability: In Stock
The new edition of A Property Law Reader: Cases, Questions and Commentary, 4th Edition, serves as an academic companion to Professor Ziff's text, Principles of Property Law, 5th Edition. Accordingly, the content follows that of the text; there are 12 chapters in all, featuring national coverage and, like the text, the approach to property law is one of law-in-context. Among topics considered are the nature of property, the concept of possession, the doctrine of estates and the origins and nature of equitable interests. An innovative collection of teaching materials, it offers a multi-faceted approach to the study of property law in Canada. Starting with an exploration of the meaning(s) of property and its philosophical foundations, the book canvasses a broad range of fundamental concepts relating to both real and personal property. However, this work goes much further than that. It examines the interplay of property rights with pressing social questions, including those affecting race, class, and gender. These issues are examined in a variety of contexts, and from a range of perspectives. A Property Law Reader invites an assessment of whether ancient legal doctrines remain of value within Canadian society. Though drawing on the law's deeply embedded history, the book seeks to provide a thoughtful treatment of contemporary property law and policy.
