The Sale, Theft And Ownership Of Land

We explore the relationship between people and land during this conversation.
We explore the relationship between people and land during this conversation.

Author Simon Winchester has helped his readers sail the seas, survive earthquakes and to read a map. His latest work focuses on what underpins everything: land. 

Winchester’s new book “Land: How the Hunger for Ownership Shaped the Modern World,” explores the relationship between people and land, and the way land has been used and abused. 

Who’s buying land? Who’s stolen it? And do any of us really own it?
