In Defense of Property


In Defense of Property: begins by cataloging various types of property and the ways in which Indigenous and European conceptions of property differ. It then proceeds to illustrate ways in which those conceptions have been stereotyped, thus leading to mistaken assumptions about the incompatibility of the two approaches. Carpenter, Katyal, and Riley conclude that using the concepts of fiduciary duty and stewardship found in both approaches can supply a foundation for bridging the different conceptions of property.
