Property in America: The Balance of Private Rights and Public Interest. Teacher and Student Manuals.
Kline, William A.
The unit explores the ethic of private property in American history, concentrating particularly on the means by which Americans have sought to reconcile the conflict between private rights and the public interest. Readings range from Thomas Jefferson and the natural rights theorists to Henry George and Eugene V. Debs, from Andrew Carnegie and William G. Sumner to Saul Alinsky. A case study details current dissension over open housing, focusing on the controversy over Proposition Fourteen in California. The unit is designed primarily for college-bound students and junior high students of above-average ability. (See SO 000 161 for a listing of related documents.) (Author/SBE)
