Hardcover: Encounter Books, 2007.
BULLDOZED is a history of how private property rights—a fundamental aspect of American life—have become weakened as a result of the expansion of powers of eminent domain. The story of eminent domain in America is not just about law and property rights, it is also a story about race relations, class privilege, and governmental power. The practice of using eminent domain to enrich municipalities is an incendiary issue, and journalist and attorney Carla Main has written an incisive expose.
