Property Rights: Rights and Liberties Under the Law

Voorkant
ABC-CLIO, 2003 - 321 pagina's

A survey of the evolution of property rights in the United States--from constitutional protections and due process to private property rights and government-takings doctrines.


Legal opinions and public attitudes toward property rights have fluctuated over the years, from periods when almost any infringement of these rights was impermissible, to times in which the government was granted much wider latitude. This book examines the history of individual property ownership in the U.S. from the late colonial era to the present, explaining how property rights were established, defended, and sometimes later reinterpreted. Of special interest are rights that have developed over time, such as due process, just compensation for government takings of private property, and the rights landowners may assert against other persons.

Of particular interest to today's readers are government regulation of private property for environmental purposes, challenges to zoning regulations, and intellectual property rights in cyberspace.

Pagina xi - Let me add that a bill of rights is what the people are entitled to against every government on earth, general or particular, and what no just government should refuse, or rest on inference.
