Persons and Property in Private Law, 2e is an edited collection of cases and writings that presents the fundamental building blocks of private law: Who can be a legal person (capable of autonomous legal action and ownership)? What is legal property (as a bundle of rights and obligations)? This book brings together materials from the classic - Blackstone's Commentaries, showing the roots of private law in the organization of the common law; to the contemporary - Christopher Stone's pieces on tree's rights and Maude Barlow's plea for national water policy, illustrating the conflicts between human and nature over rights and obligations. Private Law covers a broad range of topics, affecting individuals, corporations, and greater society. The concepts of private property and legal personality change over time; Persons and Property in Private Law offers historical background that informs and provides context to contemporary issues, stimulating discussion and engagement. A class-tested, well-thought selection of materials, Persons and Property in Private Law is a stimulating learning resource, perfect as a primary text for courses on private law in legal studies and law and society programs, and an excellent secondary resource for university private law courses.
