Takings is the best reasoned critique of modern transfer states that I have seen. This is one of a few books that has really changed the way I think about political economy. Every Law and Public Policy student should read this book, as should David Souter.
It is refreshing to see this truth in print in a well-reasoned and comprehensive book.
My only warning: the style of this book is highly intellectual and academic. This is not casual reading material.
