This casebook is organized along three main themes even though it has five major parts. The first two parts seem to me to focus on relative rights in property. The third part discusses transfer of property interests and assurances of title and the fourth discusses regulation of land use by private and public means. The majority of this essay will look at those themes and how they play out in the casebook and in my course. In the latter part of the essay, I will discuss some of the things I find most engaging about the book and why I continue to use it.
