What does it mean to own something? What justifies the erection of political boundaries between one people and another? This volume explores how diverse ethical traditions understand the political and property rights reflected in territorial and jurisdictional boundaries.

Cross-chapter dialogue and a substantive conclusion draw out similarities and differences among the traditions represented, traditions that include Christianity, classical liberalism. Confucianism, international law, Islam, Judaism, liberal egalitarianism, and natural law.
