This study covers property law and property rights, providing a full summary and comprehensive bibliography of the existing law, together with discussion from an economic perspective on the most important aspects of property law. Leading experts have brought together their knowledge and insight on a full range of issues – including comparative property law and the history of property law – to create a truly autonomous interdisciplinary resource.

This essential reference work will strongly appeal to scholars and students enrolled in academic programmes of law and economics. Academic lawyers involved in research and teaching of private (common) law, practicing lawyers in the field of real estate law, as well as economists involved in researching development economics and transition economics will also find this an invaluable resource.
Critical Acclaim
‘This book contains illuminating and carefully written literature reviews on the central topics of the economics of property rights and institutions. As a bonus, it includes two fascinating chapters on topics off the beaten path – slavery and new types of property rights in environmental goods. This book will be indispensible for students and experienced scholars alike.’
– Eric Posner, University of Chicago Law School, US
