Abstract

Throughout the early 20th century, the idea of land reform took center stage in the political discourse of many nations, although with varying success. In the later parts of the 20th century, this gave way to a property consensus through which private ownership, and the material inequalities emerging from it, became firmly entrenched in many countries of the Global North. Economic Sociologists Alexander Dobeson and Sebastian Kohl reconstruct this intricate history, building on their recent paper in Socio-Economic Review. Offering an analysis that bridges the urban and the rural, they also attend to recent cracks in the property consensus that have emerged over the past years due to the widespread and conflict-laden assetization of both urban and rural land in the Global North and South.
