In many countries today, land is increasingly subject to pressure and claims from competing uses. In addition to agriculture, these include urban development, transport, recreation, forestry, nature conservation and pollution control. Different nations show considerable diversity in the proportion of land that is agrarian, the value assigned to the land, the preferred uses for that land, and the legislative controls that regulate such activities. Law plays an important role in the allocation of agrarian land and in the amount of freedom permitted to landowners. While each nation has a more or less unique government and legal system - rooted either in civil law or in common law - certain issues are common to all.;This book is the first to provide a comparative review of agrarian land policy and regulation within ""western"" developed economies. Twelve chapters cover specific countries: USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, UK, Belgium, Denmark, Netherlands, France, Germany, Italy and Norway. There is also a chapter providing an overview of relevant European Community law and a concluding chapter comparing issues raised in the country-specific chapters. The book provides a unique overview of the subject, and while not intended as a comprehensive guide to legal practice, is a unique reference for academics and practitioners concerned with agrarian law. It will also provide an accessible introduction to the subject for all those who may not be legally trained, but who are concerned with land use, agricultural policy and rural planning.
