List of Maps; Endnotes; Select Bibliography; Index. "As David Day makes clear in this fascinating new book, no society on earth has been in continuous occupation of the land it has come to regard as its own. Behind the acquisition of land by humans in the recorded history of our species lies not only the high but bloody drama of conquest and empire, but also a magnificent though sometimes fraudulent web of acquisitory rituals, legal fictions, ruses and mythologies by which land is to be acquired or taken."
