Editorial Reviews

Review

“Here's a simple prayer:  Let no new law regarding ‘intellectual property’ be passed until all legislators have absorbed the treasures contained in this wonderful collection of essays.”

(Lewis Hyde, Kenyon College)

Making and Unmaking Intellectual Property gathers a wonderful collection of essays on the theme of intellectual property: its origins, its practices and materialities, its preoccupations, its assumptions and ways of thinking, its limitations and effects, and its alternatives. Filled with fascinating research and clear insights, this book will be of great importance not only to intellectual property scholars but to those in many of the disciplines that engage this subject, including literature, film studies, business law, and the history of science. The body of innovative work presented here will become a key reference point for scholars over the next decade.”

(Lionel Bently, Cambridge University)

“I have little doubt that this collection—with its wide-ranging, multidisciplinary approach—will join the ranks of intellectual property’s most defining works. A lucid survey of the field, Making and Unmaking Intellectual Property will serve as a point of entry for readers of various disciplines interested in going beyond the popular but often unsophisticated and uninformed debates around general intellectual property. The essays presented here illuminate in deep ways the genealogy and nature of the questions posed by IP, while engaging in diverse methodologies. Insightful, smart, and great fun, this book will be extremely useful for intellectual property’s rich history and current predicaments.”

(Matthew Jones, Columbia University)

“The essays . . . [shed] light on particular, sometimes quixotic, twists and turns in modernity’s efforts to nourish and reward the fruits of human invention. Making and Unmaking Intellectual Property is worth having on the shelf . . . because it brings between covers essays by many prominent historians, anthropologists, and literary scholars working on IP.”
(Isis)
