"A landmark project from one of the nation's foremost property law scholars, this book sheds remarkable new light on the obduracy of exclusionary zoning."--Chris Elmendorf, University of California, Davis

"Ellickson's rich and nuanced study of how zoning actually works, accessible review of the dangers the misuse of zoning poses, and insightful prescriptions for reforming a system gone awry is a must read for all policymakers."--Vicki Been, former Deputy Mayor for Housing and Economic Development, City of New York

"Weaving together zoning histories across multiple metro areas, Ellickson provides searing indictments of our system of stagnant land-use regulation and offers real solutions. A must-read for land-use scholars and policymakers alike."--Maureen Brady, Harvard Law School
