Privatizing Nature - Political Struggles for the Global Commons, Edited by Michael Goldman - "The concept of 'the commons' as a device for controlling land, forests, rivers and natural resources first entered the political realm during the enclosure movement in pre-industrial Britain. Now, as we approach the 21st century, new forms of enclosures and notions of private property are emerging - from water rights, biodiversity, and 'gene pools' of plants and humans, to the demands of multinational corporations for free access to more land for investment and exploitation."
