Private Property in the 21st Century

Private Property in the 21st Century

The Future of an American Ideal

Edited by Harvey M. Jacobs

Private property is central to American character, culture and democracy. The founding fathers understood it as key to the liberties America was designed to foster. However, over the last 200 years what one owns has evolved; ownership is different now than for an owner 200, 100, even 50 years ago. Harvey Jacobs has brought together an interdisciplinary, politically divergent group of contributors to speculate on private property’s future.
