Acquisition of Property for War Purposes
Publisher: United States Government Printing Office, 1944 Washington, DC
Book. Book condition: Good. No Jacket. Hardcover 8vo - over 7 - 9" tall "..In the past the military arm of executive power in time of war has very largely appropriated the necessary property without much regard to invoking orderly legal procedures, leaving the settlement of claims to future litigation. The resultant hardships to property owners and excessive costs to the Federal Government could very largely have been avoided if adequate legal procedures had been employed. In time of war the military have always felt that there is not time for the tedious processes of the law in the presence of a national emergency. This view has been conclusively answered in the present war in the acquisition of thousands of sites by the Lands Division of the Department of Justice. Even before Pearl harbor, legal procedures had been streamlined and put on an assembly line basis. At that time, opinions of the Attorney General as to the validity of title were being written in an average time of 6 days, and the filing of condemnation proceedings was so accelerated that sites anywhere in the United States or the territories were acquired in the average time of 4 days, 4 hours and 12 minutes, counting from the time the request was received in the Lands Division to the time when title or the right to immediate possession was vested by court order in the United States Government." xli + 158 pages with index. Book is in FAIR to GOOD condition; discoloration to pages; pages are otherwise clean; binding is very good. No dust jacket.
