Overview

Some innovations create new strategic property and new conflicts. Demarest argues that we have not reached the end of history and modern man will continue to fight over property as before, but the property will be of a post-modern character, such as electronic wavelengths and genetic codes.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
A scholar of international studies and an officer in the US Army, Demarest offers a theory of property as the basis for understanding human rights and their violations. He includes in property not only the objects people own, but the whole mass of rights and duties associated with them, and particularly with land. He argues that the arrogation of property is usually the precursor to the violation of human rights, and that grounding the debate and the efforts on property rights will alleviate much chasing after symptoms. The approach, he says, has the advantage of incorporating new technologies as they develop. Distributed by ISBS. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
