This pathbreaking study in the sociology of law has won multiple awards for its insight, clarity, and broad import in examining the UK Rent Acts and landlord behavior over a period of time in the '60s and '70s. Not just a revelation of the unintended consequence of well-meant reforms; though it shows the side-effects of a law to protect tenants, it also explores the bigger picture of law's limits.
