Book Description

This book surveys the leading modern theories of property and then applies those theories to concrete contexts in which property issues have been especially controversial. The book's goal is neither to cover every conceivable theory nor to discuss every possible facet of the theories covered, but to provide the most comprehensive and accessible introduction to that theory to date.
