Description (required)

In this careful, comprehensive historical study, Linklater (Measuring
America, 2002) reviews centuries of expansion and settlement to explore
how the ownership of land has negatively affected society. From the
sixteenth-century assertions of British rights to survey and collect
rent in St. John’s, Newfoundland (wryly characterized as “absurd” by
the author); to more prosaic discussions of fences and mapping; and up
to a bracing review of Che Guevara’s fight for land redistribution,
Owning the Earth casts a wide net over the subject of property.
Linklater discusses politics, agriculture, colonialism, slavery,
democracy, communism, and even intellectual property. His geographic
view is wide, including North America, Latin America, Europe, Russia,
China, and the Middle East. Linklater’s shifting narrative can, on
occasion, be dizzying or dense, but the subject matter is so important
and his dedication so thorough that this singular work should be
welcomed by all readers interested in land-use history and future
global concerns. --Colleen Mondor --This text refers to the
[46]Hardcover edition.

Review

[A] masterly work . . . His intellectual range is as wide as his
geographic or temporal range . . . This reinterpretation of global
history will give readers of history, politics, and economics much to
think about. (Publishers Weekly, starred review)
[Linklater] has the talent not just to let us know how things work, but
to make us want to know . . . A magical mystery tour that leaves the
reader both mildly footsore and exhilarated by unexpected connections.
(Richard Eder, The New York Times on Measuring America)
Remarkable . . . Linklater traces with unusual elegance and a keen wit
the epic story of measuring our nation, charting the process by which,
with each length of the surveyors chain, new states were literally
bought into being. (Margaret Wertheim, Los Angeles Times Book Review on
Measuring America)
A wonderful and fascinating new book . . clever and a hugely satisfying
read. It deserves to be a classic. (Simon Winchester, The Boston Globe
on Measuring America)
Whats great about history, when well done, is how even the most
familiar topics can be revisited again . . . to offer a fresh
perspective. Thats what Andro Linklater does in Measuring America.
(Bob Minzesheimer, USA Today on Measuring America)
Linklater gives us a different perspective than we usually get when
reading about how the U.S. developed. The frontier experience took
place not only in wide open spaces, but within the borders of the
United States. How that happened is an important story and Linklater
tells it splendidly. (Bookpage on The Fabric of America)
Mr. Linklater offers readers a whirlwind tour through the corridors of
Westminster, the rat-infested prisons of St. Petersburg, the
slave-funded mansions of Liverpool. He captures the fevered state of
English politics and society during the Napoleonic era. (The Wall
Street Journal on Why Spencer Perceval Had to Die)
[A] masterly work…His intellectual range is as wide as his geographic
or temporal range…This reinterpretation of global history will give
readers of history, politics, and economics much to think about.
(Publishers Weekly (starred review))
A wonderful and fascinating new book . . . clever and a hugely
satisfying read. It deserves to be a classic. (Simon Winchester, The
Boston Globe on MEASURING AMERICA)
