Land Use and Sustainable Development Law: Cases and Materials, 8th
The new edition allows professors to teach a broad range of traditional and innovative land use law subjects, ranging from zoning and site planning to sustainable development. It is organized into essentially two parts - with part I focusing on traditional practice areas in land use law, including a full range of First and Fifth Amendment issues (all from the exisiting chapters in the book which have updated notes/commentary and a sprinkling of new principal cases, enough to modernize the book without requiring significant teaching overhauls). Part II of the new edition contains in depth material on the history and evolution of sustainable development law at the international, national, and state level. It concentrates on municipal strategies that achieve sustainable development including sustainable building, smart growth, affordable housing and urban revitalization (including eminent domain), local environmental law and enhancing sequestration through open space preservation. Some of the old chapters have been updated, and a several new chapters have been added. As a result of the new Part II, the book is also a great text for an advanced course or seminar on sustainable development law.

Climate Change and Sustainable Development Law in a Nutshell
It traces the historical development of sustainable development and climate change law, showing that they appeared on the world stage at the same time and illustrating how they can be best understood, implemented, and practiced as a single body of law and policy. The book amply and ably illustrates the initiatives taken by all levels of government to achieve sustainable development, showing how these inititiatives provide important opportunities to manage, mitigate, and adapt to climate change. The Nutshell explains how the U.S. legal system fosters greenhouse gas reduction, energy conservation, and sustainable patterns of growth, including energy-efficient and sustainable buildings, the use of renewable energy resources, the protection of sequestering open space, and the adaptation of buildings and communities to sea level rise and natural disasters.

Land Use in a Nutshell
It reviews the common-law controls that were the underpinnings of modern land use regulations, and private law devices--such as covenants and restrictions--that continue to work together with government regulation to limit the use of private property. The Nutshell clearly explains the legal aspects of land planning and regulation, project review processes, and innovative and flexible regulatory devices. Subdivision and site plan regulation, local environment law, discrimination in zoning, regulatory takings and inverse condemnation, and community development practices are all explored. In addition, the book discusses the law of smart growth, and addresses current trends in land use law including the siting of renewable energy facilities. An appendix of internet-based resources is also provided. Law students will find that this Nutshell covers the key cases in all land use law textbooks, and seasoned practitioners and planners will find the organization and approach to dozens of subject areas beneficial to their understanding of land use law.

Land Use and Sustainable Development Law, Cases and Materials
The new edition enables professors to teach a broad range of traditional and innovative land use law subjects, ranging from zoning and site planning to sustainable development. The first six chapters of the book focus on traditional practice areas in land use regulation at the state and local levels, and includes a full range of federal First and Fifth Amendment issues as well as preemption (all from the existing chapters in the book which have updated notes/commentary and a sprinkling of new principal cases, enough to modernize the book without requiring significant teaching overhauls). For a nuts-and-bolts approach to land use law the first two-thirds of the book will fully cover a three-credit course. The next three chapters explore land use techniques that go beyond traditional planning and Euclidean zoning such as smart growth, transit-oriented development, new urbanism, and form based zoning. Energy and building codes that address environmental and social concerns are explored, as is the topic of local environmental law that includes: aquifer, wetlands, habitat, and steep slopes protection; storm water control; and floodplains management. How environmental impact review, biological sequestration, and climate change mitigation integrate with local land use regulation is also explored. The book ends with a focus on the critical connection between human settlement patterns-the result of local zoning and land use plans-and climate change management, where students examine methods employed by local governments, with state encouragement, to use land use planning and regulation to design buildings, neighborhoods, cities, and regions to reduce energy and fossil fuel consumption and lower carbon dioxide emissions. For professors and students interested in discovering effective methods for dealing with the worsening threat of climate change, workable strategies and needed encouragement are provided. The last third of the book works well for faculty who wish to challenge students to creatively apply the tools they have learned about to address cutting edge issues facing communities. Faculty have used this material in the basic land use course, as a one credit add-on, and as material for an advanced land use course (making it convenient for students to keep the book).
