Commons have been subject to enclosure by elites for many centuries. However commons are not always guided by egalitarian principles. The influence of class, gender and ethnicity on commons are examined. Marx's work on the enclosure of the English commons is described and the need for an approach which includes power relations is defended.

Keywords:   Commons, conflict, enclosure, resources, class
