Property Problems from Genes to Pension Funds
J. W. Harris
Kluwer law International, 1997 - Law - 309 pages
This wide-ranging collection of essays focuses on three major concerns: firstly, the frontiers of property, including genes, body parts, embryos, information, shares, bank balances and pension funds; secondly, questionable assumptions within conventional classificatory doctrines including leaseholds, mortgages, restitutionary rights, things, composite ownership and public property; thirdly, the role of property seen in an inter-disciplinary context including economic, historical, comparative and philosophical. The essays contribute insights from both common law and civil law backgrounds. They will be of interest to practitioners, academics, researchers, and political and social theorists.
