The Right to Exploit

Gijs van Donselaar

Oxford University Press

This chapter begins with a description of the case of Mr. Pickles, who in 1895 was allowed by the Judges of the House of Lords to get away with a vicious trick he had played on the community of Bradford, England. The year before, Pickles had deliberately diverted the course of a stream that was flowing through his land so that it no longer supplied the municipal water reservoir. The main arguments of the book are then presented. This is followed by an overview of the subsequent chapters.
