In the category of academic "sums", here is the Dictionary of Common Property. Given its volume, it could only be the fruit of a collective work. In fact, no less than two hundred authors have contributed to it to provide three hundred and fifty entries (from "Abuse of rights" to "Area to be defended", but without devoting an entry to the concept of competition...) which reflect the diversity and richness of a concept that is particularly mobilized today in political, socio-economic and philosophical discourse. Halfway between a vocabulary and an encyclopaedia, as the three coordinators of the work point out, this dictionary offers the reader the essential keys to understanding a civic and participatory society based on the use and sharing of goods and heritage common to all stakeholders.
