Early Modern Conceptions of Propertydraws together a distinguished group of scholars from an array of disciplines, including law, economics, politics, art history, social history and literature, to consider fundamental issues of property in the early modern period. Presenting diverse, original historical and literary case studies in a sophisticated theoretical framework, the contributors offer a challenge to conventional domestically focused and land-based interpretations, examining such intangibles as "intellectual property" and "genetic property," terms whose roots date back to the early modern period. Contributors include: Donna Andrew, Richard Ashcraft, David D. Bien, Carol Blum, Patrick Coleman, Michael Craton, Tim Keirn, Lawrence E. Klein, David Lieberman, Mario H. Pastore, J. S. Peters, Harriet Ritvo, Laura Rosenthal, Ian Shapiro, Margaret R. Somers.
