“…a unique undertaking, as it puts together versatile information about land use in many countries, thus affording the possibility of comparative analysis. Prominent experts from eleven countries contributed to this edition. The division of the subject matter into three parts encompassing a) general notions and theoretical issues, b) land relations in developed market economies, and c) land relations in transition economies, is reasonable because land use reflects the interest of major economic players and their interactions.” – Gregory Ioffe, Professor of Geography, Radford University
