Reviewing the second edition of a largely unchanged book is a difficult task. If the principles upon which the first edition was based are accepted, one compares the second edition to the first and remits readers to reviewers of the first edition for further comment. Persons who maintain a fondness for the first edition of this book will be happy to see that the changes made are minimal in most areas. The book retains its doctrinal approach to property law, and continues the theme that in order to usefully serve modern society, the law of real property must emancipate itself from its feudal progenitors and embrace the realities of the commercial world. It does not, however, spend its time tilting at feudal windmills, but comes to grips with many of the hard issues of property law.
