   schema:reviewBody ""This work ranges from the practices of the nineteenth-century Ottoman government in the constitution of private property rights to the practice of cadastral mapping in British India and Great Britain. These essays, carefully prepared in full collaboration as part of a unified research programme, cover Ottoman and British land laws, property rights in the British colonies, and the notion of property as a contested domain and a site of power relations both in nineteenth-century China and 1970s Istanbul. No such interdisciplinary study of private property exists. Constituting Modernity will not only set the tone of much research to come, but reworks the fundamental theory behind the scholarship to date."--Jacket." ;
