Making extensive use of archival and other primary sources, David Schorr demonstrates that the development of the ?appropriation doctrine,? a system of private rights in water, was part of a radical attack on monopoly and corporate power in the arid West. Schorr describes how Colorado miners, irrigators, lawmakers, and judges forged a system of private property in water based on a desire to spread property and its benefits as widely as possible among independent citizens. He demonstrates that ownership was not dictated by concerns for economic efficiency, but by a regard for social justice.
Dal retro di copertina:
"In this brilliant book, David Schorr demonstrates that prior appropriation water law broke radically from riparian water law in order to prevent moneyed land interests from monopolizing and speculating in the scarce waters of the arid west." - Justice Greg Hobbs, Colorado Supreme Court
"This is an extremely important contribution not only to American legal history but to economic history and legal theory generally. Schorr's idea that the prior appropriation doctrine created an anti-commons for purposes of distributive justice is completely original and highly important." - Gregory S. Alexander, Cornell Law School
"This important book provides a highly original and well-documented agrarian perspective on a pivotal episode in water law and the history of the nineteenth-century American West." - Henry Smith, Harvard Law School
