Grant Nelson, Dale Whitman, Colleen Medill, and Shelley Saxer have recently put out a new edition of their casebook, Contemporary Property. Here's the publisher's blurb:
The book begins with fundamental Property principles and concepts, followed by personal property with an introduction to intellectual property. Subsequent chapters cover present and future interests, concurrent estates, landlord and tenant law, real estate transactions, easements, covenants, and public land use regulation (including zoning, eminent domain and regulatory takings, and constitutional challenges based on due process, equal protection, freedom of speech and freedom of religion).
The publisher also emphasizes that the authors have redone the teacher's manuel to make it easier for experienced teachers to switch books and new teachers to go through the material the first time.
