Nicole Stelle Garnett (Notre Dame) has published Ordering the City: Land Use, Policing, and the Restoration of Urban America (Yale University Press, 2009). From the Amazon.com blurb:
This timely and important book highlights the multiple, often overlooked, and frequently misunderstood connections between land use and development policies and policing practices. In order to do so, the book draws upon multiple literatures—especially law, history, economics, sociology, and psychology—as well as concrete case studies to better explore how these policy arenas, generally treated as completely unrelated, intersect and conflict.
Garnett's book joins Lee Anne Fennell's The Unbounded Home: Property Values Across Property Lines and Eduardo Penalver & Sonia Katyal's Property Outlaws: How Squatters, Pirates, and Protestors Improve the Law of Ownership as the must-read land use books hot off the press.
