Newmedia Publishing, 2001 - 308 страници
This book is a comprehensive treatise on the concept of a right, or entitlement from the time of the ancient Greeks to the present. The author follows the evolution of a right from philosophical concept to its adoption in the late twentieth century. He is especially interested in teh development and current state of a natural right, which he defines to be the combination of laws that harmonize the workings of the universe, including our own little corner of it, as designed by God.
