Jesse Dukeminier’s trademark wit, passion, and human interest perspective has made Property, now in its Tenth Edition, one of the best—and best loved—casebooks of all time. A unique blend of authority and good humor, you’ll find a moveable feast of visual interest, compelling cases, and timely coverage of contemporary issues. In the Tenth Edition, the authors have created a thoughtful and thorough revision, true to the spirit of the classic Property text.
