Zoning law and practice

by E. C. Yokley. Lexis Nexis Matthew Bender. 4th edition. 1978.
8 volumes.

The first edition of title was published in 1948. Now in its fourth edition, it has continued as a practical reference to attorneys, judges and planning and zoning commission members. The eight volumes cover all aspects of zoning and include references to the cases from all fifty statesand local ordinances. Although generally practical in nature, Yokley can wax eloquent as demonstrated in his description of the “corrosive effect” of spot zoning. “It is a high wave of disturbing character, spawned by legislative gusts that mar an otherwise calm sea of orderly community life”.
