Description

For centuries, jurisprudence has

been built up and developed in terms of a more or less

comparable body of concepts: family, private ownership,

individual rights, and the State, the necessity of

which was challenged in the original program in the

name of which the soviet government assumed the

reins of power. What then is the fate under the soviet

regime of the legal concepts thus far operative in all

civilized societies?

This book seeks to offer material for the answer to

questions of this nature. The principal aim of the author

has been to inquire into the legal protection and actual

exercise of private rights in the Soviet Union, on the

basis of an examination of the authentic soviet sources.

Extensive quotations from these sources in the discussions

in Volume I and full translations of major codes

and other enactments in Volume II are intended to help

the reader to form his own opinion and to check the conclusions

of the author.
