A history of Mexican land ownership.
"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
United States conquest of Spanish colonies in the second half of the nineteenth century is not a subject that has produced extensive historical analysis. The military seizure and colonization of half of the territory of the Republic of Mexico has elicited little interest and is often glossed over as part of the natural expansion of the United States. However, the indigenous peoples of the region have not forgotten that they were conquered and that they have human and legal rights despite the fact that they are now minorities in the area seized. Roots of Resistance: Land Tenure in New Mexico, 1680-1980 provides a better understanding of the history of Mexican and Indian peoples in the Southwest and reveals the dynamic nature of New Mexican cultural survival.
