About the book:

One of the most enduring dreams is of a Utopian society in which all possessions are held in common ownership, and there is never a quarrel over 'mine' and 'thine'. Professor Pipes argues in this book, such a dream has never been translated into reality in the secular world, despite the best efforts of socialist and communist ideologues. Acquisitiveness is deeply ingrained in all living creatures and all societies for both economic and psychological reasons. Where there are no guarantees of property there are no limits to state authority and no regulatory bodies of law, and hence no guarantee of individual liberty, or 'civil rights'. Herein lies the crux of the author's argument.
