    Land tenure refers to the bundle of rights and responsibilities under which land is held, used, transferred, and succeeded. This essay surveys land tenure arrangements throughout the world since the Roman Empire. Particular attention is paid to how six forms of land tenure emerge, function, and change. The six forms of land tenure analyzed are (1) owner cultivation of small, private lands; (2) squatting on public or private lands; (3) large estates or latifundia; (4) feudal tenures with bound and unbound labor; (5) communal tenures; and (6) smallholder leasing from private landowners.

    The price of land in Honolulu is higher than in any other major U.S. urban area. In this paper we examine several determinants of the supply and demand for land and discuss their likely influence on Honolulu's land price. We utilize comparisons between demand and supply conditions in Honolulu and in the 40 most populous U.S. urban areas to ascertain the strength of the respective determinants. Our regression results confirm that natural and institutional constraints restricting the supply of land play an important role in determining price in Honolulu and in the 40-city sample.
