Antieau on Local Government Law, Second Edition continues the comprehensive treatment of local government law begun when this publication was first written more than 40 years ago by Chester James Antieau, one of the nation's leading experts on local government law and civil rights. Newly revised and completely updated, the treatise provides a current and complete perspective on municipal corporations, as well as independent local government entities, and counties, adding emerging topics such as telecommunications, while still covering the same broad subject areas with which users have become accustomed:

•   Authorities & Districts
•   Contracts
•   Education
•   Elections and Referendums
•   Exercise of Powers
•   Finances
•   General Powers
•   Judicial Actions and Local Courts
•   Land Use Regulation
•   Officers and Employees
•   Organization
•   Relationship With Other Governments
•   Services and Assistance
•   Torts

Topics such as franchising, ordinances, police powers, home rule, public housing, public assistance, charters, intergovernmental relations, and education continue as the touchstones of the publication. Centralized and intense general discussions facilitate research. Precise jurisdiction headings for each authority in the footnotes are now provided. Year-of-decision dates for each authority have been continued. The treatise highlights the foremost authorities in each topic area.
