Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This exceptional study...is strikingly original....Both defenders and detractors of property rights should study Christman's trenchant analysis....Highly recommended for those seriously interested in rights to property."—Choice

"An interesting alternative approach to the analysis of property and ownership rights....Even if one does not accept the author's...views... there is much to like about this book....This book is worthwhile reading for anyone interested in the theory of property rights and its relation to the economic policy process."—Journal of Economic Literature
