The aim of this book is simply stated: it is to examine, in the context of English and Irish law, what interests may exist in personal property (ie property other than land) and how those interests operate. This is a complex task, however: it involves bringing together and exploring the common foundations of matters that are generally, but misleadingly, presented as belonging to entirely separate legal categories. Thus, on the one hand, much of what is discussed falls within the field of commercial law: eg sale of goods, hire-purchase, work and materials contracts, bills of exchange, pledges, liens, company charges and corporate insolvency. On the other hand, much would be classified under that amorphous head equity: eg equitable interests, secret trusts, priorities and tracing. The book also finds a coherent home for matters that have no happy place in other types of work: gift (largely ignored elsewhere), assignment of choses in action (sometimes covered in books on equity, sometimes in works on the law of contract) and possession (relegated too often to works on jurisprudence).

This study of the boundaries of personal property has an inward and an outward perspective, with the intellectual emphasis on the latter. The inward-looking inquiry considers shares as items of personal property. Nowadays those who think of themselves as shareholders often stand one step removed from the share itself. They hold what this book christens a sub-share. This part of the book asks in what sense shares and sub-shares can be conceived to be things, how those things are alienated, and how they are protected in litigation. The outward-looking inquiry then asks whether personal property can be contemplated as a sub-category of the law of things and, more particularly, as the law of all things locatable in space, alienable, or vindicable in court. The outward inquiry considers three boundaries. Within the law of property the line between realty and personalty proves relatively uncontroversial; the second boundary lies between property and obligations; the third between wealth and non-wealth. The second boundary is the main concern. Respect for it necessitates a differentiation between the law of property in the strict sense and the all-encompassing law of wealth, even where the consequence might be to exclude shares and sub-shares from the law of property. In maintaining the value of careful proprietary taxonomy and in reviving the underlying concepts on which it depends, this book opposes modern scepticism as to the possibility and desirability of precision in legal classification. In these commitments it could fairly be styled a post-modern study of personal property. Winner of the SLS Birks Prize for Outstanding Legal Scholarship 2006 - Second Prize.
