Thanks to Sandefur:

For sending me a complimentary copy of his book, which I can't wait to read. A couple of quick remarks right off the bat. First, it's truly impressive to see who wrote blurbs on the back for it: Chip Mellor, President, Institute for Justice; Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas); Richard Epstein, University of Chicago Law School; James W. Ely Jr., Vanderbilt University Law School; and Dennis Hayes, General Counsel, NAACP, Baltimore, Maryland.

Second, it's also nice to see that his editors let him speak in his personal voice, complete with influences, unique to Sandefur. In arguing that property rights are "natural" -- that is, they comprise a core need in human nature -- Sandefur cites the philosopher Daniel Dennett.

This is one of the few if not the only times that you will see Sen. John Cornyn who is associated with religious conservatives praising a book that relies on the very anti-religious thinker Daniel Dennett.

And that makes Sandefur's project all the more interesting.
