About this book
Contemporary approaches to compensation, founded on the utilitarian argument, have led to dissatisfactory outcomes for the affected landowners. Discussions in this book shift the focus to equalizing the share of burdens and benefits for each individual member of the society, through equalization of human capabilities.
This book will be of value to development economists, researchers, policy makers and law makers concerned with compulsory acquisition of land.
