Benjamin K. Sovacool and Michael H. Dworkin. Global energy justice: problems, principles, and practices. Cambridge University Press, 2014.

K3981.S68 2014

Peter M. Gerhart. Property law and social morality. Cambridge University Press, 2014.

K721.5.G47 2014

 

In this new study, Gerhart presents a unified theory of property that combines economic and philosophical approaches.
