About the Author

Hendrik Hartog is Professor of Law at the University of Wisconsin.


"Public Property and Private Power, which tells the story of the conversion of the propertied, chartered city of New York into a model municipality of nineteenth-century America, is a work which allows us to examine the aesthetics of the historian's craft."-Reviews in American History "A splendid study of the changing law of municipal corporations."-Journal of American History "A subtle, difficult, and important book. It breaks new ground in two important subfields of American history: legal history and urban history... Hartog's legal skills enable him to make sense of early corporation law at the same time that his historical skills allow him to disentangle the concepts of property and republicanism in the context of the emergence of the 'modern' city of New York."-Stanley Katz, Princeton University
