In the 1990s a grass-roots movement has sprung up among ordinary people to fight regulatory actions taking away their rights to land. In this collection of new essays, twelve distinguished scholars of economics, law, and public affairs address the history and causes of this movement. They document and analyze Supreme Court decisions on regulatory takings, enforcement activities of the Corps of Engineers and EPA, and case studies involving takings under the Endangered Species Act.
