Integrating Spaces: Property Law and Race enables you to seamlessly integrate historical and contemporary issues of race and ethnicity into your Property syllabus alongside your casebook. With historical perspective and doctrinal analysis, it maps the directions in which property law has turned in response to issues of race and ethnicity, and demonstrates how racial and ethnic categories continue to affect contemporary property law.
Integrating Spaces: Property Law and Race provides a dynamic social, historical, and doctrinal context for teaching property law:
- nearly 30 new and provocative cases—including the Supreme Court decision in Oyama v. California (alien land laws) and state court and federal court decisions in Trueheart v. Parker and Morison v. Rawlinson (race nuisance cases involving a jazz club and an African American church)
- extensive treatment of Federal civil rights statutes and their implications for environmental justice and the housing and financial crisis
- a close look at the efficacy of traditional property concepts as solutions to minority or cultural requirements—such as easements by prescription for Native American religious uses (United States v. Platt), Native Hawaiian access to sacred sites and beaches ( PASH), and the impact of partition land sales on African-American farmers and indigenous communities
- consideration of an international perspective, including cases on land redistribution in South Africa, cultural property in Australia, and restitution in post-conflict Bosnia and Herzegovina and Guatemala
- legal context and appropriate pedagogy from statutes, excerpted law review articles, and questions for discussion in the notes
- Teacher's Manual that provides additional questions and suggestions for linking the cases to coverage in traditional casebooks
Timely and relevant, Integrating Spaces: Property Law and Race brings a whole new dimension to your Property course. If you’re looking to refresh your teaching experience, challenge your students, or fuel class discussion, order a complimentary copy of Integrating Spaces: Property Law and Race.
