This handbook brings together diverse perspectives, major topics, and multiple approaches to one of the biggest legal institutions in society: property.

Property touches on many fundamental human questions. It involves decisions about power, economy, morality, work, and ecology. It also involves ideas about where humans fit in the world and how humans relate to more-than-human life. This book will ask in myriad ways such questions as: what property means, what kinds of property there are, what is and should be the relationship between owned and owner, and what is the impact of different forms of property on life in this world? Drawing on a range of socio-legal and empirical methodologies, renowned scholars and rising stars in property from around the world present current issues and map future directions in research. Coming from the place of law but reaching out through cognate disciplines, this handbook provides a comprehensive and accessible survey of current research at the interface of property, society, and the environment.

This handbook will appeal to students and researchers across a range of disciplines, including law, sociology, geography, history, and economics.

Industry Reviews

"The editors have brought together an impressive and diverse group of authors from across the globe. The book deals with property in the context of law and society and therefore illustrates how property comes to life in the real world whilst at the same time providing a rich source of state of the art research for property scholars." Bram Akkermans, Professor of Property Law, Maastricht University, the Netherlands

"This fascinating and diverse collection deserves space on every property scholar's shelf. The book moves property debates forwards, proposing intellectual and theoretical frameworks to understand property as a form of spatial, social and ecological governance. Incorporating knowledge on race, colonialization and legal pluralism, the book increases the scope of our debate about what property is and could be." Antonia Layard, Professor of Law, University of Oxford, UK

"The institution of property offers a special opportunity to explore the inevitable tensions between the forces of stability and justice-inspired change. Professors Graham, Davies, and Godden have assembled an all-star cast to conduct this exploration across a range of axes - from theory to doctrine to practice. The book is a critical and highly-accessible resource for scholars, practitioners, government officials, activists, and anyone else intrigued by questions surrounding the meaning of ownership." Timothy M. Mulvaney, Professor of Law, Texas A&M University School of Law, USA
