The success of internet auction sites like eBay and the cult status of public television's Antiques Roadshow attest to the continued popularity of collecting in American culture. Acts of Possession investigates the ways cultural meanings of collections have evolved and yet remained surprisingly unchanged throughout American history. Drawing upon the body of theoretical work on collecting and focusing on individual as opposed to museum collections, the contributors investigate how, what, and why Americans have collected and explore the inherent meanings behind systems of organization and display. Essays consider the meanings of Thomas Jefferson's Indian Hall at Monticello; the pedagogical theories behind nineteenth-century children's curiosity cabinets; collections of Native American artifacts; and the ability of the owners of doll houses to construct meaning within the context of traditional ideals of domesticity. The authors also consider some darker aspects of collecting-hoarding, fetishism, and compulsive behavior-scrutinizing collections of racist memorabilia and fascist propaganda. The final essay posits the serial killer as a collector, an investigation into the dangerous objectification of humans themselves. By bringing fresh, interdisciplinary critical perspectives to bear on these questions, Dilworth and her coauthors weave a fascinating cultural history of collecting in America.

Claims to adverse possession are very popular and yet the law is far from straightforward. It is also very topical having been recently reviewed by the House of Lords in JA Pye (Oxford) Ltd v Graham, and the Land Registration Act 2002 has made significant alterations. However it will still apply to unregistered land and even in the case of registered land, adverse possession will continue to be of importance and an area of considerable complexity.Jourdan: Adverse Possession is the first text book to deals with the subject in detail. It provides a full treatise on the law, referring to both English and Commonwealth authorities, and examines the various issues of principle and practice which arise including title, meaning and elements of possession, the running of time, estoppel and human rights considerations. It also deals with specific circumstances and factors such as registered title, easements, leases, mortgages, trusts, co-ownership, and licences. Valuable advice is also given drafting pleadings in adverse possession disputes.Written by a well-known barrister from a leading set of chambers, it is the only detailed, practical guide to this area of law. It will be of value to a
