In vielen westlichen Ländern sind rechte, nationalistische Bewegungen auf dem Vormarsch. Wie ist es dazu gekommen? Arlie Russell Hochschild reiste ins Herz der amerikanischen Rechten, nach Louisiana, und suchte fünf Jahre lang das Gespräch mit ihren Landsleuten. Sie traf auf frustrierte Menschen, deren "Amerikanischer Traum" geplatzt ist; Menschen, die sich abgehängt fühlen, den Staat hassen und sich der rechtspopulistischen Tea-Party-Bewegung angeschlossen haben. Hochschild zeigt eine beunruhigende Entwicklung auf, die auch in Europa längst begonnen hat. Hochschilds Reportage ist nicht nur eine erhellende Deutung einer gespaltenen Gesellschaft, sondern auch ein bewegendes Stück Literatur. "Jeder, der das moderne Amerika verstehen möchte, sollte dieses faszinierende Buch lesen." Robert Reich "Ein kluges, respektvolles und fesselndes Buch." New York Times Book Review "Eine anrührende, warmherzige und souverän geschriebene, ungemein gut lesbare teilnehmende Beobachtung. ... Wer ihr Buch liest, versteht die Wähler Trumps, weil sie auf Augenhöhe mit ihnen und nicht über sie spricht." FAZ

The rules of land law are numerous, complex, and in some cases baffling to students and the study of land law is also often portrayed as dull. Too frequently those who find success in working out how the law operates in other areas of law find themselves defeated by land law. Writing about the law of property, even the great jurist Blackstone apparently succumbed to the depressing conclusion that the study of land law 'afforded the student less amusement and pleasure in the pursuit' than the study of crime and tort.This book tries to make a difference. It aims to tell the rules' story: to talk about them in terms of the work they do, in a way that will allow readers to understand and engage with them. And through the example it offers, it aims also to give students the confidence, spur and tools to go on to develop such perspectives for themselves.The book covers the main points of land law found in the syllabuses of law schools in England and Wales. While it is not intended as a comprehensive textbook on the topic, it offers sufficient detail for anyone reading it to gain an overview of the subject, and for those seeking more the footnotes offer plenty of pointers.As the author says in the preface, "use this book as a guide so as not to get lost - then go out and explore".
'Here is a book whose breadth of purpose and depth of learning are breathtaking.' Peter Butt, [2005] 69 Conv 363 Gray & Gray's Elements of Land Law is the definitive textbook on the subject. The book offers comprehensive coverage of the law in this area. The authors provide an insightful and thought-provoking commentary on the modern development of the subject and go on to explore how land law functions in today's society. The book includes an analysis of recent legislation and case law in England and Wales. There are also references to significant cases from Australia, New Zealand, the United States and Canada, coupled with a detailed account of reforms currently proposed by the English Law Commission. The book demonstrates a thorough understanding of the social and political context of land law and guides the reader through the sometimes difficult terminology of the subject. This fifth edition continues to balance up-to-date coverage of the key issues in land law with a critical survey of cutting-edge research. Building on the strengths of previous editions, the book ensures that excellent scholarship is accessible to an even wider readership: more chapters of shorter length offer the possibility of readers 'dipping' into topics in a non-linear way. A fresh, new format and text design support the re-structuring of content and aid navigability. Readers wanting to explore areas of interest in more depth are encouraged to do so by the exemplary footnoting and referencing. The book is accompanied by an online resource centre providing updates and web links between editions. This facility also contains illustrative material such as photographs relating to relevant cases discussed in the book. A podcast of the authors introducing the subject will excite students new to the subject area.

Editorial Advisory BoardProfessor I.H. Dennis (University College, London)Professor R.W. Rideout (University College, London)Professor J.A. Usher (University of Edinburgh)In Property Law: Cases and Materials, Roger Smith brings together in one volume those cases and materials that a property law student is most likely to require to support a course in the subject. Law Commission reports and other materials supplement the extracts from cases and statutes which lie at the heart of the book. The author outlines the general principles of each topic, keeping the text deliberately light on references and minor points of detail, in order that the key principles are brought to the fore. In addition to drawing attention to the grey areas and controversies revealed in the extracts, the commentary and questions of varying difficulty link and critically discuss the various extracts, setting them in context.The result is a portable library of key sources which students will find readily digestible and navigable. This book is structured along the lines of, and is an indispensable companion to, the author's own textbook on this subject (Property Law, also in this series), but could be used with a
Der Klassiker - von sechs Wirtschaftsnobelpreisträgern empfohlen, eine Pflichtlektüre! Warum sind Nationen reich oder arm? Starökonom Daron Acemoglu und Harvard-Politologe James Robinson geben eine ebenso schlüssige wie eindrucksvolle Antwort auf diese grundlegende Frage. Anhand zahlreicher, faszinierender Fallbeispiele – von den Conquistadores über die Industrielle Revolution bis zum heutigen China, von Sierra Leone bis Kolumbien – zeigen sie, mit welcher Macht die Eliten mittels repressiver Institutionen sämtliche Regeln zu ihren Gunsten manipulieren - zum Schaden der vielen Einzelnen. Ein spannendes und faszinierendes Plädoyer dafür, dass Geschichte und Geographie kein Schicksal sind. Und ein überzeugendes Beispiel, dass die richtige Analyse der Vergangenheit neue Wege zum Verständnis unserer Gegenwart und neue Perspektiven für die Zukunft eröffnet.

Eine wunderbar lesbare Mischung aus Geschichte, Politikwissenschaft und Ökonomie, die unser Denken verändern wird. Pflichtlektüre.« Steven Levitt, Autor von »Freakonomics«
