In this book 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 texts of the statutes with a historian's eye Anderson explains how the statutes were enacted, by whom and for what reasons. Partly a work of modern legal history, partly a commentary on modern English land law, this book should be read by all modern legal historians, property lawyers, and historians concerned with the relationship between property, politics, and the professions.

`This is an interesting and scholarly book, giving a comprehensive account of the many vicissitudes in the struggle for the reform of the land law in the period covered by the book ... well researched and as is to be expected from this house, well presented. It represents an interesting contribution to legal history ...' New Law Journal `He has done a service to his profession and to the understanding of professionalism in general, and its paradoxical but plausible belief that "true self-love and social are the same"' Times Literary Supplement `This is a well-researched and carefully written study of the many discussions, draft reports and Bills that have led to the several reforming statutes on the Land Law of the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries ... Coming from this printing house, it is, of course, attractively presented.' The Cambridge Law Journal 'carefully balanced account' German Historical Institute London Bulletin, Volume XVI, No. 1, February 1994 `carefully balanced account' German Historical Institute Bulletin
