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.

About the authors

James L. Huffman is Dean Emeritus of Lewis and Clark Law School, USA, and a member of the Hoover Institution's John and Jean De Nault Task Force on Property Rights, Freedom and Prosperity. Huffman has taught law for four decades and has written extensively on constitutional, natural resource and private property topics. His commentaries appear regularly in The Daily Caller and occasionally in the Wall Street Journal and several other publications.

Reviews

"Huffman's fine book applies keen scholarship infused with personal experience to provide a cogent and compelling justification for property rights. Court opinions and academic writing have long suffered from obtuse reasoning that removed constitutional protection from one of the rights most essential to a free society. Huffman exposes the fallacies in this reasoning and explains what is needed to restore property rights to their proper place under the Constitution." William H. Mellor, President and General Counsel, Institute for Justice, USA

"Armed with a lifetime of thinking, writing, and teaching about property rights, Huffman draws it all together here with a thorough and systematic analysis of his subject. Readers will leave this book armed for the battles that lie ahead to restore the right that is the very foundation of our liberties." Roger Pilon, Vice President for Legal Affairs, Director, Center for Constitutional Studies, Cato Institute, USA
