THE SPANISH AMERICANS IN NEW MEXICO.
KNOWLTON, CLARK S.
THE SPANISH AMERICANS IN NEW MEXICO ARE UNDERGOING GREAT SOCIAL AND CULTURAL CHANGE. THEIR VILLAGE CULTURE, FORMED IN ISOLATION NEAR IRRIGATED LAND WHICH HAD REMAINED REMARKABLY STABLE FOR SEVERAL HUNDRED YEARS, IS BREAKING DOWN. THE SPANISH AMERICANS ARE LEAVING THEIR VILLAGES AND MIGRATING TO INDUSTRIAL CENTERS. FACTORS CONTRIBUTING TO THIS ARE--(1) LOSS OF MILLIONS OF ACRES THROUGH LAW SUITS, TAX SALES, AND PRECISE LAND REGISTRATION, (2) DECLINE OF THE SHEEP INDUSTRY, THE TRADITIONAL LIVESTOCK OF THE SPANISH AMERICANS, AND (3) EXPANDING PURCHASE OF LAND BY OUTSIDE INTERESTS FOR SUMMER RANGE AND INCOME TAX WRITE-OFF. THE AUTHOR CALLS FOR STUDIES OF THE SPANISH AMERICAN IN THE PROCESS OF CHANGE TO INDUSTRIALIZATION AND URBANIZATION. (SF)
