Margaret Davies is Professor of Law at Flinders University, South Australia. Her research covers several fields of legal theory, including feminist legal theory, legal pluralism, the philosophy of property, and postmodernism. She is the author of several books, including Asking the Law Question (2002) and Delimiting the Law (1996)Review:
"Property is a core concept of Western political and legal thought. Exactly what property is, how property rights can be defined and justified, and how its meaning has changed over time is a matter of significant debate. Davies (Flinders Univ., Australia) sketches out a compact, sophisticated, and often challenging discussion of property, seeking to engage the concept from multiple perspectives...the author does an excellent job addressing the complexity and multiple meanings associated with property. The feminist-property connection is especially interesting. Good for collections on law, feminism, and political theory." -- D. Schultz, CHOICE, May 2008
"... eminently readable, lucid and thought-provoking. ...anyone with even the most basic acquaintance with and interest in property theory will find it thoroughly rewarding." - Alison Clarke, King's Law Journal, Vol. 19 No. 3 (2008)
