Land Reform in Scotland: History, Law and Policy (Paperback)
This interdisciplinary analysis of Scotland's perennial political hot potato - the Scottish land question - follows the latest legislative development, The Land Reform (Scotland) Act 2016. Bringing together leading academics and professional experts working in law, history and policy, Land Reform in Scotland delves into issues from the early modern period to present day. Individual chapters discuss some areas such as property theory and human rights which have been under-studied in relation to land reform.
