Book Review: The Institution of Property, 25 Georgetown Law Journal 497 (1937)

Abstract

This book has defied brave attempts adequately to summarize its content in the limited space of a review. It is an encyclopedic exposition of "the institution of property" beginning with the prototypes and" strains" of property in prehistoric, pre-legal and "pre-property" eras. The evolution of property is elaborately traced through Roman society and the English federal system, it is examined in the light of the Modern Juristic Analysis of Property, and its status depicted and analyzed as it appears in "the practical law of today in the United States ". In the light of these studies the author ventures a summation and restatement of the Substance and the Structure of Property with diagrammatic presentation of the network of the" institution" and a new nomenclature.
