520    In Eighteenth-Century Fiction and the Law of Property, 
       Wolfram Schmidgen draws on legal and economic writings to 
       analyse the description of houses, landscapes, and 
       commodities in eighteenth-century fiction. His study 
       argues that such descriptions are important to the British
       imagination of community. By making visible what it means 
       to own something, they illuminate how competing concepts 
       of property define the boundaries of the individual, of 
       social community, and of political systems. In this way, 
       Schmidgen recovers description as a major feature of 
       eighteenth-century prose, and he makes his case across a 
       wide range of authors, including Daniel Defoe, Henry 
       Fielding, William Blackstone, Adam Smith, and Ann 
       Radcliffe. The book's most incisive theoretical 
       contribution lies in its careful insistence on the unity 
       of the human and the material: in Schmidgen's argument, 
       persons and things are inescapably entangled. This 
       approach produces fresh insights into the relationship 
       between law, literature, and economics
