Here Stuart Anderson offers a completely fresh interpretation of the manner in which the concepts found in the 1925 property legislation were formed by debates about law reform beginning in the 1840s.

Examining the texts of the statutes with a historian's eye, he explains how the statutes were enacted, by whom, and for what reasons. The result is both a work of legal history and a commentary on modern English land law.
