Academically rigorous yet welcoming and fully attuned to the needs of the student reader, Chris Bevan's Land Law represents a new breed of textbook, blending traditional and contemporary teaching approaches to guide its readers to a confident understanding of the subject.With its lively, engaging writing style - in which the author's enthusiasm is always apparent - and distinctive way of speaking directly to students, anticipating their questions and areas of confusion, Bevan's book does not simply set out the law but actively teaches it. Clear explanations arecomplemented by frequent, carefully-crafted visual aids, conveying key concepts in ways that all students can understand, and topics are broken down into sections that are easy to digest and navigate.This book maintains a critical emphasis and encourages students to consider and understand the law in context (both within society and their degree), not just in the abstract. "Key case" boxes offer concise insights on leading cases that pique students' interest, spurring them to conduct their ownreading of primary material, and although the book reflects on historical background in order to make sense of today's law, its overriding perspective is forward-looking, epitomised in the "Future directions" conclusions for each chapter which consider future implications and likely reforms.Balancing brevity with detail and rigour with accessibility, Land Law is a truly modern textbook that supports and motivates its readers, allowing them to reap the rewards an understanding of this complex but fascinating subject will bring.Online resourcesThe published text will be accompanied by extensive online resources containing a test bank of questions, animated diagrams, "Wider debates" podcasts from the author, "Leading lawyers" perspectives' videos, advice on answering essay and problem questions, updates on changes in the law and new cases,as well as links to useful websites.

In der geheimen Welt des verborgenen Wissens hat die Macht einen schrecklich hohen Preis Quentin Coldwater steht kurz vor dem Abschluss der Highschool. Die Schule langweilt ihn – wie ihn eigentlich alles langweilt außer Fillory, das magische Land aus den phantastischen Büchern, die er liebt. Doch plötzlich findet sich Quentin, der gerade noch durch Brooklyn gelaufen ist, selbst in einer magischen Welt wieder, an einer geheimen Zauberschule: Brakebills College. Und auch Fillory gibt es wirklich. Aber es ist keine heile Welt, sondern ein düsterer Ort, von dem eine schreckliche Bedrohung ausgeht. Quentin und seine Freunde begeben sich auf eine gefährliche Reise – und müssen sich einem alles entscheidenden Kampf stellen... »Fillory verhält sich zu Harry Potter wie ein Glas Whiskey zu einem Becher dünnen Tees. Fest verankert sowohl in der Tradition des Fantasyromans als auch in der der allgemeinen Literatur, spielt er an auf die Welten von Oz und Narnia - auch Harry Potter lässt grüßen. Aber glauben Sie ja nicht, das sei ein Kinderbuch. Grossmans Gefühlswelten sind durch und durch erwachsen, seine Erzählweise düster, gefährlich und voller überraschender Wendungen. Hogwarts war nie so« George R. R. Martin, Das Lied von Eis und Feuer – A Game of Thrones

The book is divided into four main parts: trusts and the preservation of family wealth; trusts and family breakdown; trusts and commerce; and trusts and non-profit activity. Within each of these parts, leading cases, statutes, and historical and research materials are placed alongside the narrative of the author's text to give emphasis both to general theories of trust concepts and to the practical operation of trusts. Attention is also given to important themes such as the developing relationship between trusts law and other areas of private law such as the Law of Restitution. This new edition takes account of all relevant judicial and legislative developments since the third edition, and expands discussion of key themes in current developments of the law.

Quentin muss die sieben goldenen Schlüssel finden, um nicht nur Fillory sondern alle magischen Welten und damit die Welt selbst zu retten. Quentin und seine Freunde, Julia, Janet und Eliot, sind nach Fillory zurückgekehrt, um in dieser magischen Welt als Könige und Königinnen zu leben. Aber schon bald wird Quentin dieser so ausgeglichenen und unveränderlichen Welt überdrüssig – er will das Abenteuer und er will sich nützlich machen. Als die Außeninsel ihre Steuern nicht bezahlt, nimmt er das zum Anlass, sich dorthin auf die Reise zu machen. Er hat ein uraltes Segelschiff gefunden, dass er aufwendig restaurieren lässt und sticht schließlich mit Julia und seinen Freunden in See. Doch was sie nicht wissen, ist, dass Julia sich auf einen gefährlichen Handel mit einer Gruppe abtrünniger Magier eingelassen hat. Sie erhält außergewöhnliche Kräfte, büßt dafür aber ihre Menschlichkeit ein. Und diese Magier haben zudem die alten Götter heraufbeschworen, die die magischen Welten zerstören wollen. Nur wenn Quentin und seine Freunde die sieben goldenen Schlüssel finden, können sie die Welt retten. Eine fantastische Suche beginnt, die die Freunde von Fillory über Chesterton, Massachusetts, Venedig und die Jenseitsinsel bis ans Ende der Welt führt.
