Land Reform in Scotland: History, Law and Policy

Malcolm Combe (Editor), Jayne Glass (Editor), Annie Tindley (Editor)

Research output: Book/ReportBook


Land reform is as topical as ever in Scotland. Following the latest legislative development, the Land Reform (Scotland) Act 2016, there is a need for a comprehensive and comprehensible analysis of the history, developing framework and impact of Scottish land reform. Scholarly yet jargon-free, this landmark volume brings together leading researchers and commentators working in law, history and policy to analyse the past, present and future of Scottish land reform. It covers how Scotland's land is regulated, used and managed; why and how this has come to pass; and makes some suggestions as to the future of land reform.
