Analyses South African property law and its development of novel concepts of ownership.


Andries van der Walt is the South African Research Chair in Property Law, at Stellenbosch University, South Africa. His previous publications include Constitutional Property Law (2005).


Having its origins in the process of transformation and land reform that began to take shape in South Africa at the end of the last century, this strikingly original analysis of property starts from deep inside the property regime. Focusing on issues of stability and change in a transformative setting, and on the role of tradition and legal culture in that context, the book argues that a property regime, including the system of property holdings and the rules and practices that entrench and protect them, tends to insulate itself against change through the security- and stability-seeking tendency of tradition and legal culture, including the deep assumptions about security and stability embedded in the rights paradigm, rhetoric, and logic that dominate current legal culture. The rights paradigm tends to stabilize the current distribution of property holdings by securing extant property holdings on the assumption that they are lawfully acquired, socially important, and politically and mo

This book explores the possibility of a theoretical space where justice-inspired changes to the extant property regime can be imagined and discussed.
