First and foremost, I want to apologize to our loyal readers for disappearing into the ether for the past few weeks. Getting ready for the first days of class meant something had to give, and this time, it was the blogging. But I'm back! And starting later this week, I'm hoping to try something new: a series of posts about the same topic--and one of the biggest land use stories of the summer that we have not yet touched upon at this blog--California Governor Jerry Brown's second try at building a peripheral canal around the California Delta. More on that later this week...
Today I'm dropping in to commend the John Marshall Law Review on putting out an excellent volume with articles from many of the land use field's luminaries on the 40th anniversity of the Quiet Revolution in land use control. We have already blogged about the conference, and Patricia Salkin's article in this volume. However, a hard copy of the full volume landed in my mail box over the weekend, and I just couldn't help but write to say that, if you have a copy in your mail box, take the time to read it, and if you don't, go get it! Articles by Fred Bosselman, Patricia Salkin, Daniel Mandelker, David Callies, Edward Sullivan are just the beginning. Of course, the Quiet Revolution in Land Use Control was a landmark 1971 publication (available here) authored by Fred Bosselmann and David Callies. If you haven't checked out the original, download it and add it to your reading list!
A happy start to the semester to all!
