Lawscape: Property, Environment, Law considers the ways in which property law transforms both natural environments and social economies.

Addressing law's relationship to land and natural resources through its property regime, Lawscape engages the abstract philosophy of property law with the material environments of place. Whilst most accounts of land law have contributed cultural analyses of historical and political value predominantly through the lens of property rights, few have contributed analyses of the natural consequences of property law through the lens of property responsibilities.

Lawscape does this by addressing the relationship between the commodification of land, instituted in and by property law, and ecological and economic histories. Its synthesis of property law and environmental law provides a genuinely transdisciplinary analysis of the particular cultural concepts and practices of land tenure that have been created, and exported, across the globe.
