Summary

"Land examines in depth how we determine where the land lies, how we acquire it, how we steward it, how and why we fight over it, and, finally, how we can, and on occasion do, come to share it. Ultimately, Winchester confronts the essential questions: who actually owns the world's land, how much of it do we really need, and why does it matter?"--Inside front jacket flap.
