New Book on Eminent Domain and Property Rights

I've written before on the importance of the Christian ethic of private property as it relates to economic policy. One issue that starkly illustrates this fact is eminent domain, a fancy name for government theft of property.

The Independent Institute has just published a new book edited by Bruce Benson on government confiscation of property via eminent domain and other regulation. Property Rights: Eminent Domain and Regulatory Takings Re-examined looks to be the new go-to book on this issue. It should be of great interest for anyone interested in the nature of consequences of state violation of private property rights.
