Co-published with the Society for Economic Anthropology, Property in Economic Context presents fifteen original essays examining the definition and organization of property in the context of economic organization. Focusing on precapitalist societies as accessed through history and archaeology, as well as modern colonial encounters accessed through ethnography, the essays argue for and illustrate the importance of including specific property features when doing an analysis of economic organization. This is the first time that general property issues have been empirically investigated in this manner.
