Conflicts caused by competing concepts of property are the subject of this book that aims to reshape study of the relationship between law and society in Australasia and North America. Chapters analyze decisions made by governments and courts upon questions of policy and law in terms of their consequences for rights and models of personhood. Late 20th-century decisions concerning native title in Canada and Australia demonstrate the relevance of historical case studies of communal and fee-simple landholding in colonial and post-colonial societies. An international team of contributors draw on their experience from a wide range of disciplinary backgrounds and jurisdictions.
