The Pacific Legal Foundation's Timothy Sandefur has a long piece on the history and implications of eminent domain in March's Liberty magazine. Here's a taste:

In fairness, a lot of urban planners are wary of eminent domain, but I think there's a lot of validity to the point that planners generally (and unconsciously) tend to view most things, even private property and businesses, as being in the public sphere and thus malleable in pursuit of their aims.
