About this book

This book details the relationship between private property and government. As private property is important to both individual welfare and the public interest, the book provides an intellectual framework for the analysis and resolution of contemporary property rights disputes.

Reviews

"This book is a profound discussion of the many sides of the relationship between the allocation of property rights in a society and state control of the economy and of its citizens' lives. The book is important and timely. It enriches understanding of the tension in every society between government authority over a nation's resources and its citizens' use of the property that the state and its political system allow them to control." George L. Priest, Edward J. Phelps Professor of Law and Economics, Yale University, USA

"This book will fill an important gap in the literature. There are relatively few good books addressing the bigger picture issues. This work is pitched at an intelligent reader, gets appropriately detailed when the details matter, but manages to tie the details to the bigger issues. It is extremely well written, logically organized, and well presented." Andrew Morriss, D. Paul Jones, Jr. & Charlene Angelich Jones Chairholder of Law, University of Alabama, USA
