Since the 1960s, when Brazil first encouraged large-scale Amazonian colonization, violence and confusion have often accompanied national policies concerning land reform, corporate colonization, indigenous land rights, environmental protection, and private homesteading. Conjuring Property shows how, in a region that many perceive to be stateless, colonists - from highly capitalized ranchers to landless workers - adopt anticipatory stances while they await future governance intervention regarding land tenure. For Amazonian colonists, property is a dynamic category that becomes salient in the making: it is conjured through papers, appeals to state officials, and the manipulation of landscapes and memories of occupation. This timely study will be of interest to development studies scholars and practitioners, conservation ecologists, geographers, and anthropologists.

About the Author:

Jeremy M. Campbell is associate professor of anthropology at Roger Williams University.

Review:

"Campbell's writing is fluid and engaging. He demonstrates how large-holders (grandes) and homesteaders alike use parallel forms of graft, coercion, and chicanery to claim land."―Liza Grandia, author of Enclosed: Conservation, Cattle, and Commerce among the Q'eqchi' Maya Lowlanders

"Campbell breaks new ground in Latin American ethnographic treatments of Amazonia through the focus on layered histories of promised development that have, over the years, drawn diverse people to these places, and prompted the varied and unexpected modes of speculative accumulation described."―Penny Harvey, professor of social anthropology, University of Manchester
