Gadsden is the sole authoritative treatise on the law of commons, town and village greens. The previous edition was published in 1988 and this new edition incorporates extensive developments in the law since then.

A Government consultation paper and report has recently considered the future of commons law; town and village greens can now apply for commons rights; vehicular access and the ""right to roam"" over common land are increasingly important issues; as are questions of commercial development - all are covered in this wide-ranging and definitive text.
