If you're looking for the book to give that person in your family who doesn't understand what land use law is, you might consider Leigh Gallagher's The End of the Suburbs: Where the American Dream is Moving. The book has been called "prophetic," though I'd note that it is, in many ways, a recounting of data any land use scholar has seen reproduced in numerous forms over the last several years (e.g., the Census).
And so, most land use scholars won't find much new here, but it is packaged in an easy to read way that might make that nagging family member understand why land use is the most fascinating area of law ever, as we all know it to be.
