The Right to Private Property
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. The author's overriding determination throughout is to follow through the arguments and values used to justify private
ownership. He finds that the traditional arguments about property yield some surprisingly radical conclusions.
