Takings: Private Property and the Power of Eminent Domain
Harvard University Press, Jun 30, 2009 - Law - 376 pages
If legal scholar Richard Epstein is right, then the New Deal is wrong, if not unconstitutional. Epstein develops a coherent normative theory that permits us to distinguish between permissible takings for public use and impermissible ones. He then examines a wide range of government regulations and taxes under a single comprehensive theory.
