NEW YORK, NEW YORK: ASPEN PUBLISHERS, 2011. 368 PAGES. $40.00. 90 Texas Law Review 423 (December, 2011) Property is oft considered the province of the antediluvian, far situated from modern concerns, particularly issues of race and diversity.

The thread of old... 2011

Schwemm NEIGHBOR-ON-NEIGHBOR HARASSMENT: DOES THE FAIR HOUSING ACT MAKE A FEDERAL CASE OUT OF IT? 61 Case Western Reserve Law Review 865 (Spring, 2011) This is a nice neighborhood--we don't want people like you here. Why don't you go back to the ghetto where you belong. Does the federal Fair Housing Act (FHA) ban such statements to a minority family who has just moved into a predominantly white neighborhood?

I don't think things ought to be done because you are able to do them. I think they should be done because you ought to do them. After all, a penny is a penny in any case, however much Might is exerted on either side, to prove that it is or is not. Is that plain? ~ T.H. White Where do... 2011

Lee Anne Fennell PROPERTY AND PRECAUTION 4 Journal of Tort Law 1 (October, 2011) Property in land suffers from an unacknowledged precautionary deficit.

Olatunde Johnson THE LAST PLANK: RETHINKING PUBLIC AND PRIVATE POWER TO ADVANCE FAIR HOUSING 13 University of Pennsylvania Journal of Constitutional Law 1191 (June, 2011) The persistence of housing discrimination more than forty years after the passage of the federal Fair Housing Act (FHA) of 1968 is among the most intractable civil rights puzzle.

Audrey G. McFarlane THE PROPERTIES OF INSTABILITY: MARKETS, PREDATION, RACIALIZED GEOGRAPHY, AND PROPERTY LAW 2011 Wisconsin Law Review 855 (2011) A central, symbolic image supporting property ownership is the image of stability.

Despite the symbolic image, property is home to principles that promote instability, albeit a stable instability. This... 2011
