Can the right to private property be claimed as one of the rights of mankind? This is the central question of a critical examination of the subject of private property. Jeremy Waldron contrasts two types of arguments about rights: those based on historical entitlement, and those based on the importance of property to freedom. He provides a detailed discussion of the theories of property found in Locke's ""Second Treatise"" and Hegel's ""Philosophy of Right"" to illustrate this contrast. The book contains original analyses of the concept of ownership, the ideas of rights, and the relation between property and equality.
