Nine-Tenths of the Law examines the history of squatting and property struggles in the United States, from colonialism and homesteading to 20th-century urban squatting and the foreclosure crisis of the late 2000s, and how such resistance movements shape the law. How does “property” fit into designs for an equitable society? This book is a toolbox for housing justice, as well as a guide for better understanding the foundation of American property law and the legacy of squatters who came before.
