Medicine, Property and the Law in Britain 1800–1914

  • M. A. Crowther (a1) and Brenda M. White (a1)
Abstract

Property, in spite of its solid sound, is an elusive idea. As C. B. MacPherson puts it:

The actual institution, and the way people see it, and hence the meaning they give to the word, all change over time… The changes are related to changes in the purposes which society or the dominant classes in society expect the institution of property to serve.
