Indian and Spanish American Adjustments to Arid and Semiarid Environments.
Knowlton, Clark S., Ed.
The nine papers contained in this symposium report deal with changes in a wide variety of social, economic, and cultural patterns of the Indians and Spanish speaking peoples of the Southwest, with emphasis on land use practices. Historical perspectives are presented to illustrate the gradual shift of these peoples from a pastoral, semi-agricultural society to one based on menial or migratory labor. Emphasis is also given to the need for development of a philosophy and planning techniques which would eliminate, in the future, some of the problems evident today. (DK)
