The leading case of The Mayor, Alderman and Burgesses of the Borough of Bradford v Pickles was the first to establish that it is not unlawful for a property owner to exercise his or her property rights maliciously and to the detriment of others or the public interest. Though controversial at
the time, today it is often invisible and taken for granted. This book explores why the common law, in contrast to civil law systems, developed in this way.
