By: Department of Justice, Lands Division

This reprint was originally published as the Second World War raged on abroad, with no end in sight.

Property and the Dead Hand
By Ronald Chester

In this groundbreaking book, Professor Chester examines dead hand control of property by decedents and how this phenomenon has changed form over the centuries, with particular emphasis on the period beginning with the 1980s. Although there is something essentially human about the desire to control the use of one’s property after death, modern American dead hand control is both less personal and more far-reaching than in the past.
