Environmental pressures, fierce debates about growth, and civil rights issues continue to redraw the boundaries defining land use law.

Land Use Law, Fifth Edition reviews local planning and land use regulation programs, and is the only treatise with comprehensive citations to federal and state court decisions, as well as state statutes. Both land use practitioners and general practitioners whose clients have land use regulation problems will find this book a valuable addition to their library. Look to Land Use Law for both federal and state case law. In addition to federal takings law, it has sections on federal remedies under Section 1983 of the Federal Civil Rights Act, free speech issues as they apply to land use regulations, and antitrust law.

Even if you don't go to court with land use cases, you'll find this to be an invaluable resource on the law of variances, special exceptions, zoning amendments, subdivision approvals, and other zoning actions that are heard by local zoning agencies.
