Product Description

American Property: A History of How, Why, and What We Own (9780674058057): Stuart Banner: Books. This is one of those books whose title doesn�t really give you much of a clue about the wonders within. What sounds like it might be a staid look at a dry subject turns out, in fact, to be an exciting and captivating journey along a fascinating side road in American history: property and its ownership. Around the time of the American Revolution, when the country was divorcing itself from England, a massive change took place: the old British laws concerning property were not merely tweaked but, instead, demolished and rebuilt from the ground up. From the fundamentals�ownership of land, which was a revolutionary idea in the eighteenth century�to more esoteric subjects, such as whether it�s possible to own less-tangible kinds of property (sounds or the news or parts of your own body), the author, a professor of law at the UCLA, explores the occasionally labyrinthine legal and political processes that, as America was defining itself as a country, began to define one of its residents� most basic (yet complex) rights. --David Pitt
