This book analyzes [ejido] land as space of urbanization and location of economic activities and capital and land privatization as a redistributive process with local, urban, regional and global consequences.

Book News
Article 27 of the Mexican Constitution regulated land and its redistribution from the end of the 1910 Revolution until 1992, when provisions were added to it to deregulate ejido lands, permit their privatization, and open them for investment. Ejido is a land tenure system that emerged from the Revolution designed to restore land to landless and indigenous peoples. Castillo considers the potential impact of the changes on rural and urban land in general, and examines in detail case studies from Sonora, Guerrero, and Oaxaca.
