Somin’s Book Reviewed in Wall Street Journal

Professor Ilya Somin's book, The Grasping Hand: Kelo v. City of New London and the Limits of Eminent Domain, was reviewed in the Wall Street Journal by Edward Glaeser, professor of economics at Harvard.

Glaeser wrote, “Mr. Somin has written an important book that maps the road ahead for those who believe that individual freedom cannot be separated from the protection of private property. Susette Kelo suffered significantly, but I hope she takes some pride in the fact that her name is now a rallying cry for those who fight for a freer, better future.”

They Can Take It If They Want It, Wall Street Journal, July 24, 2015. By Edward Glaeser.
